BENEFITS OF PATENT REGISTRATION
A patent is a right granted to an individual or enterprise by the government which excludes others from making, using, selling, or importing the patented product or process without prior approval.
The proprietor has complete control
For the Patent, the owner has the right to utilize his ideas in whatever way he wants. It means that the proprietor has complete control over the use, sale, and modification of the original invention, as well as the ability to prevent others from profiting from the same ideas without his permission.
Return On Investment Privileges
When the owner realizes that his innovation is not bringing him any benefits, he may decide to give it to another deserving or successful individual. The patent rights, once obtained, enable him to commercialize the concept and earn a considerable return on his investment.
Benefits in a longer duration
The creator will profit in a variety of ways from the selling of the innovation. It only aids in obtaining a 5 percent royalty, but it is extremely beneficial to innovators who have a great idea but lack the financial means to put their invention to market.
Disclosure to the General Public
Patent rights allow the inventor to gain public attention, which helps him extend his portfolio while also raising cash, market value, and possible business partners. The inventors’ competence and command of the technical subject matter are demonstrated by their willingness to share information about the invention with the general audience
