International Patent Services
There are multiple advantages of getting a patent. A patent gives exclusive rights to owners that invent something new, a product or service providing a new way of doing something, a solution to a problem. The owners can then use their inventions exclusively or give others license to use their patent, earning royalties. The patents can also be sold, generating revenues for the business/individual. Through Patent International, you can secure your inventions exclusively without confusion.
Through a patent, you become the only one to produce and sell your invention. Even if someone finds out how you made your invention, they still will not be allowed legally to produce it. This is a vital importance of why a patent is necessary. If you do not get a patent and someone else copies or reproduces your invention, they will have the opportunity to patent the invention under their name, stopping you from using your own invention! Not just that, they might also sell you the patent for your own invention, earning royalty from you! You just can’t let yourself be at that kind of a disadvantage.
If you are a startup, it is easy for you to garner investments from potential investors through patents because inventions that are unpatented are risky and considered to be not secure thus discouraging investors.
Patent International offers multiple patent services including European Validation, National Phase Entry, and Patent Translations. The patent process is made easy and simple, with real time updates on the current status of your patent. With its wholesale negotiation leverage utilization, Patent International ensures lowest translation, filing, and prosecution rates.
How to File an International Patent
Different countries have different laws related to patents. WIPO has The Patent Cooperation Treaty, through which an applicant can seek protection for his invention for multiple member countries with a single application. Common procedure includes keeping a written record of the invention, know the commercial aspect of the invention, conducting extensive search regarding available patents and then filing an application. The application will also go through examination.
Patents generally stay in effect for up to 20 years and cannot be renewed. Some patents require a maintenance fee in between years like after 3.5 years, 7.5 years, 11.5 years etc. If the maintenance fee is not paid then the patent will expire the next year.
