Obtaining a patent is one of the most effective ways to protect novel and useful inventions. Patent protection forbids the sale or offering for sale, import, making, preparation or use of the patented invention within the jurisdiction wherein the patent was obtained for the life period of said patent without consent from the patent holder. The patent may be obtained through a highly technical and legal process that requires experience, dedication and specialized knowledge of the patent law, USPTO Office rules and procedures as well as the pertinent nature of the invention sought to be patented.
