What is Patent Registration?

The patent is an exclusive right granted to the Patentee over his/her invention for a limited period of time. Through Patent Registration, the patentee shall have all the rights regarding controlling, making, using, selling or importing patented product or process for producing that product. After Patent Registration, no one will be able to use the invention without the consent of the patentee. However, whether the invention is patentable or not depends upon various factors such as invention must be innovative which involves an inventive step and which can be used in industry.

After the process of patent registration, one gets intellectual property right to an invention carried out by an individual or a firm. In case it is unique, the government will grant you the full right for your product. It grants you the full right of making, using, selling or importing the product or services and prohibits others from doing so. The patents in India are governed by the Patent Act 1970 and Patent Rules 1972.

The patent could be for many things, be it process, art, method to manufacture, particular apparatus, machine, computer software, technical application, chemicals or drugs. We, at LegalRaasta act as a patent agent and helps companies in registering themselves in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and all other Indian cities.

What is the Importance of Patent Registration in India?

20-year patent protection: Your invention is protected for a set period of time, which is 20 years.

Rights Reserved: It also boosts your company's revenue by allowing the patent holder to charge a premium for the invention.

Reputation of the inventor: The inventor's credibility will increase once the patent is registered.

Enough funds: Although it only pays a lower royalty, it is extremely beneficial to people who have an idea but lack the funds to bring it to market by selling the idea outright.

Sell or transfer patent rights: You can sell, transfer, or franchise your patent after it has been registered
