Patent Complete Registration
Patent is any invention or technology which has not been anticipated by publication in any document or used in the country or elsewhere in the world before the date of filing of patent application with complete specification. A Patent gives you an exclusive right over an invention means that you could monetize and prevent its unauthorized use.
What can be Patented:
• Any article, apparatus or machinery or its component
• Any substance whether living or non-living, product, pharmaceutical product
• Any composition of matter, pharmaceutical products

Types of patent
- PROCESS PATENT: Any new way or method or process used for manufacturing any tangible product.
- PRODUCT PATENT: Any tangible product which has the characteristics of an original creation and is of industrial significance amongst other requisites.
Reasons to get a Patent
- Balance in the competition
Patent registration helps maintain a balance of competition by providing due credit to the inventor and hence promoting new inventions and preventing monopoly.
- Increase in business revenue
A patent registration results in increase of business revenue by enabling a patent holder to monetize their invention through numerous means.
- Creation of an asset
It can be easily said that patent converts an invention into an asset. This is simply because a patent can be easily monetized through ‘assignment’ or ‘license’ and is also valid for a period of 20 years with an option to renew its validity.
