Intellectual Property and Patent:

Innovation is a new solution to a technological problem that can be protected by licences or patents. Patent secures the interests of innovators whose tools or ideas are genuinely noteworthy and financially fruitful, by guaranteeing that a founder or creator can control the business utilization of their idea.

Why is Patenting Important?

An individual or organization that holds a patent over innovation has the privilege to keep others from manufacturing, trading, retailing, or stealing that innovation. This provides opportunities for creators to sell, exchange, or accredit their licensed ideas to others who may wish to use them.

Criteria to Obtain a Patent:

The criteria that must be met in order to obtain a patent are underlined in national IP laws and may differ from one country to the next. In any case, in order to acquire a patent, an innovator must clearly show that their innovation is new (novel), valuable, and not obvious to someone working in the relevant subject. To do so, it is essential to depict how their innovation works and what it is capable of.

International Patent:

A patent is a private right that has been granted by the government. It only has legal consequences in the country (or region) where it is licenced. As a result, innovators or organisations seeking to secure their innovation in other countries should look for patent insurance for their new discoveries in those countries as well. To this end, WIPO’s Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) is intended to make acquiring patent insurance in 152 distinct nations as simple and cost-effective as possible.

Overall, it implies that they can make a living from their efforts.
  2. When a new innovation hits the market, society as a whole benefit – both directly, because it may enable us to accomplish something previously unthinkable, and indirectly, because of the financial opportunities (business growth and work) that can result from it.
  3. The income created by patent-protected technologies makes it possible to fund additional research and development (R&D) in the field, thereby increasing the chances of exceedingly improved innovation becoming available later on.
  4. A patent transforms a creator’s ability into an industrially tradable resource, opening up doors for business development and employment creation.
  5. Having a patent makes a company alluring to investors who assume an important position in empowering the commercialization of innovation.
  6. A patent, when recorded, provides strategy makers with valuable information about where and by whom innovation R&D is taking place. This information will be useful in setting policy and administrative conditions that allow intellectual property to thrive.
  7. A patent can help prevent deceitful third parties from free-riding on the efforts of the innovator.

Conclusion:-

Even if existing patents are 99% identical to your creation, If your innovation has either specialised development, boosted monetary worth, or both, you can demonstrate that your innovation is superior to existing models which leads to the possibility of patent protection for your creation.

To sum it up, while there are numerous benefits to intellectual property, the most significant benefit of applying for a patent is monetary. Patenting ensures that only the inventor can profit financially from the technology until and unless the creator renders permission otherwise.
