Patent Protection

Introduction to Patent Protection

Patents are generally used as commercial tools to gain a bridgehead position over the competition, to prevent unauthorised third parties from copying an invention and/or to act as a source of revenue for the patent owner.

An invention is ‘new’ if it has not previously been made publicly available by a disclosure in a published document or by its use in public. It is, therefore, imperative to file a patent application before the invention is publicly disclosed.

An invention ‘involves an inventive step’ if it is not obvious in the technical field of the invention. Inventiveness or non-obviousness is a highly subjective question and one on which many court cases have focussed. Our Patent Attorneys can help you with any aspect of your patent including understanding the criteria, preparing and filing your application, renewing and taking legal action.

The third criterion is almost always satisfied with any invention which can be made and used in a commercial activity.
