A patent is an exclusive right granted to an invention that meets certain features. Patent grants a monopoly to use the technical solution covered in professional and profitable way within a given territory.
Patent holder may prohibit other market participants - its competitors - economic exploitation of the technical solution , covered by its patent. The scope of patent rests in patent claims thus it is extremely important to edit it carefully in line with the purposes that are to be achieved.
Patent is granted to the invention which has an inventive step i.e. it is not obvious to specialist in a given art. The patent is granted to invention that is new i.e. different from other known solutions. The patent application must be filed before the invention will be revealed to the public, otherwise it will not meet the third prerequisite – novelty.
Patent Office of a given country or European Patent Office will examine whether the conditions for obtaining patent protection are met by given application.
The patent grants exclusive right to use invention for 20 years from the filing date. During that time, patent can be exploited commercially and improved, which gives the holder a significant competitive advantage on the market.
A patent is an investment, which brings its holder measurable benefits.
Patents are rights in principle limited to the territory of given country. Thus, Patent Office of Republic of Poland grants patents effective within the territory of Poland. This principle is departed by the notion of European Patent granted under “Convention on the European Patent”. Under this procedure European Patent Office grants a patent for the invention, which is then validated only in the given country.
