A patentable invention can be a product or a process that gives a new technical solution to a problem. It can also be a new method of doing things, the composition of a new product, or a technological improvement in how particular objects work. Once a patent is granted, the protection term is 20 years from the filing date, subject to the payment of annual fees.
Once you register a patent, apart from using it to prevent others from exploiting your invention, you can use it to raise funds for your business, license it to third parties for commercial returns, or sell the patented invention.
