Inventions, Patents and Utility Models

Innovation is what distinguishes the leader

A PATENT is a title that recognizes the right to exclusive use for a period not greater than twenty years of a new procedure, apparatus, or product, or completion or improvement of these.

The right to use the patented invention recognizes the right to exclude third parties from manufacture, use or introduction of the patented product or procedure in free trade.
The requirements for protection of an invention patent are: worldwide novelty and inventive activity.
An invention patent is valid for twenty years from the date of submission of the application. Annual fees must be paid as of the time the patent is granted for legal maintenance.

An UTILITY MODEL is a title that recognizes the exclusive right to use for a period not greater than ten years of an invention with less inventive rank than the inventions protected by Invention Patents.

Specifically, it consists of giving an object a new configuration or structure resulting in a benefit or practical utility.

The scope of protection of a utility model is similar to that granted by an invention patent.
