Patents are used to protect new inventions which are capable of industrial application.

As the owner of a patent, you have a valuable monopoly right over an invention for a period of up to 20 years, preventing competitors from marketing products which would ultimately infringe your concept.


The patent system aims to encourage the exchange of knowledge and technical development by requiring inventors to disclose how an invention is made in return for the protection afforded by a patent.

As an inventor you have to weigh up whether the benefit of patent protection is worth putting your invention in the public domain for.
