What is a patent?

A Patent is an intellectual property right protecting a technical invention, provided it is:
- new and
- inventive.

The owner of a granted patent can prevent any non-authorized party from producing, selling or using in any other commercial way the invention claimed by the patent.

Patents can be directed to :
- products
- processes
- methods or uses.

A patent needs to be registered for claiming protection for the remaining 20 years after the filing date, provided it has been renewed every 1 year after its validation.
