What is considered as an Invention:

An invention is a unique or novel device, method, composition or process. It may also be an improvement upon a machine or product, or alternate means of achieving a process. An invention that is not derived from an existing model or idea, or that achieves a completely unique function, discovery, or result, may be a radical breakthrough. Inventions often extend the boundaries of human knowledge, experience or capability. An invention that is novel and not obvious to others skilled in the same field may be able to obtain the legal protection of a patent.

What kinds of inventions can be patented?

An invention must, in general, fulfill the following conditions to be protected by a patent. It must be of practical use; it must show an element of “novelty”. The invention must show an “inventive step” that could not be deduced by a person with average knowledge of the technical field. Its subject matter must be accepted as “patentable” under law.

Why Register Patent:

Registering a patent gives the owner or the inventor, right to decide who may – or may not – use the patented invention for the period during which it is protected. Patent owners may give permission to, or license, other parties to use their inventions on mutually agreed terms. Owners may also sell their invention rights to someone else, who then becomes the new owner of the patent. Patenting an invention is not only for benefit of the inventor, but by disclosing the information of applicant, patentee and inventors, they can be located by companies or individuals who intend to use their invention. The system of Patenting also motivates invention and innovation through the accumulated pool of technological information contained in patent documents. The technology disclosed in patent documentation might serve to stimulate ideas for further invention and innovation.
