Why Need a Patent
Patent Rights are prerequisite for making all types of commercial and professional uses of the patented (registered) invention, within the concerned jurisdiction. These rights also help the inventor or patentee in keeping the precious invention safe and secured from any type of misuses and infringement upon the contents of the invention, by any other unauthorized individual or entity. Hence, patent rights gained after registration of an invention, are absolutely necessary for doing a business in any professional, commercial, industrial, or service field, at local, national, or international levels.
