Why Do You Need to Get a Patent Registration?

A patent refers to the exclusive rights granted for an invention which is either a product or a process that provides for a new way to do something or a solution to an existing problem in exchange for an enabling public disclosure.

Which is a technical disclosure of technical aspects of the invention. The patent owner has exclusive rights over the invention for a limited period of years during which he can restrict others from commercially exploiting the invention. So if you have an innovative product or solution you should realize its potential, treat it as an asset, and get it protected by intellectual property laws.

1. Benefits of early registration

If you are sure about your invention you should apply for patent registration immediately. Indian Patent laws follow a first to file system. This means whoever files the patent application for an invention first gets a priority date. You don't even need to file the complete application if your invention still demands some work. Instead, you can file a provisional application, which is inexpensive and short to summarize. You have an assurance that nobody can claim the same invention within a pendency period of 12 months from the priority date. You must file a permanent patent application with complete claims and description within these 12 months.

2. Exclusive rights

A patent endows you with exclusive offers over the invention which enables you to restrict someone from claiming, copying, manufacturing, and selling the invention without your permission. If anyone does so he or she will be subject to litigation for patent infringement. This is valid through the entire lifespan of the patent. In India the longevity of a patent is 20 years. Having complete protection you can do anything with the invention even modify the original invention.

3. Returns on investment

Presumably, your invention has commercial viability, although it is entirely up to you whether you want to commercialize it or not. However, it is natural that you will want some ROI as you have invested time, effort, and money into it. Thus you should study the market well and sell your invention so that you may derive monetary returns from your invention while retaining exclusive rights over it.

However, you may choose to avoid the burden of commercializing the invention yourself and license or sell your invention to somebody in exchange for monetary returns. In case of licensing you will retain your exclusive rights, although you'll lose them if you sell your invention.

4. Good market reputation

Patent rights give an inventor substantial exposure to the market along with a noticeable status and improve his portfolio by revealing the invention publicly. This helps the inventor forge good relationships with customers and competitors that eventually will bring in revenues. You will automatically attract leading business partners, investors, and shareholders towards you or your organization for doing business. With such a strong image in the market, you will have more negotiating capacity in your hand for your invention.
