Registration of patents, utility models and industrial designs
Inventions offer technical solutions to everyday problems and patents grant an exclusive right to protect the asset that can be commercially exploited, for a limited time, in exchange for disclosing your invention. The registration of the patent prevents third parties from manufacturing, selling or using it without prior consent.
Notwithstanding the above, not all inventions and creations are patentable in industrial property matters. Since it must be a novel creation or invention. As well as involving an activity and inventive capacity on the part of its author, with an industrial application and to be seen on a “patentable” object. In addition, it must be requested from the competent authorities or bodies, fulfilling a series of requirements to train them. Therefore, in addition to patents, there are different modalities of protection for these creations such as utility models or industrial designs.
