A patent protects your invention, it describes the way things work. A registered patent allows the owner to prevent others from making, selling, importing the invention without permission.
A patent registration lasts for 20 years and is renewed after the 5th year, each year, for up to 20 years protection.
In order to register the patent it must be
1. New, i.e. not something that has been invented before.
2. Must be something that can be used
3. Must be something that is not obvious to those within the industry to make or use.
A patent cannot be a theory, literary or musical works or a business method.
