Patents protect new and clever innovations.
A product or process may be patented if it is new over what is already known – the so-called “state of the art” – and provided it is not merely an obvious modification of something that is already known.
It is important that inventions are kept confidential before deciding whether to file an application for a patent, as prior disclosure of the invention can be fatal to the validity of any subsequently granted patent.
Patents can be difficult to obtain as strict examination for novelty and inventive step is carried out by the Patent Office. There are also some types of invention which are excluded from this kind of protection. However, if a patent is granted, it can provide a powerful commercial monopoly for an innovative idea.
At Mohun Intellectual Property we have the skill and experience to oversee the entire process.
