Intellectual Property Rights
A Patent is a form of intellectual property right that gives the holder exclusive rights over his inventions. That means that individuals, organisations or any other firms cannot use, export, import, sell the invention without the permission of the owner for a limited period of time, under the public disclosure agreement of the particular invention.
A patent registration helps you to get a patent of an intellectual property right to an invention carried out by an individual or firm. IP department has been initiated by Indian government to grant you the full right to register your invention under patent (but only if it is unique). In return the inventor must produce all the proofs related to the invention as asked by the government. It also ensures that owner gets more preference over other person for your particular invention. In India, Patent registration is being governed by the Patent Act 1970 & Patent Rules 1972
