A patent protects inventions. Once you get a patent on your design or invention, you can prevent anyone from copying your patented work without your permission.
What can be Patented?
Art, process, method or manner of manufacture.
Machines, apparatus or other articles.
Substances produced by manufacturing.
Product patent for food, chemicals, medicines, and drugs.
A patent search is a preliminary process before filing/applying for a patent. Before such a right is granted, there is a rigorous check on whether the process or product is inventive/ novel.
Provisional applications are generally filed at a stage where the invention is not fully complete. Therefore, filing a provisional application allows the applicant to get an early application date. A complete specification has to be filed within 12 months from the date of provisional.
Non-Provisional Patent Application:
An application for patent filed in the Patent Office without claiming any priority of application made in a convention country or without any reference to any other application under process in the office is called an ordinary application. An ordinary application must be accompanied with a complete specification and claims.
20 years from the date of filing for a provisional or permanent patent, the patent falls into the public domain.
