Know Your Patent Rights and Responsibilities

Obtaining patent protection for an invention is a crucial step in turning your great idea into a viable business opportunity. A U.S. patent awards you the right to prevent anyone else from making, using, or selling your invention in the United States. With this monopoly right you are better positioned to benefit from your creativity and hard work. Whether you choose to manufacture and market your product, license your ideas, or sell your intellectual property outright, a patent strengthens your position.
