In today’s rapidly changing business environment, new technology can be both an asset and a liability. Obtaining and enforcing your patent may be one of the most crucial steps you can take as a business owner.
What is a Patent?
A patent is a legal document granted by the government that gives its owner the limited right to exclude others from making, using, or selling protected technology. Generally, patents are limited to the country of issuance and expire after 20 years. However, with a comprehensive, individualized intellectual property strategy, it may be possible to obtain worldwide coverage and effectively extend the life of the patent, depending on the circumstances.
