Registration of Patents in India

A patent is legal monopoly granted by a statue of a country to the owner of an invention to make, use, manufacture and market the invention, provided the invention satisfies certain conditions stipulated in the law. Exclusivity of right implies that no one else can make, use, manufacture or market the invention without the consent of the patent holder. This right is available only for a limited period of time. However, the use or exploitation of a patent may be affected by other laws of the country which has awarded the patent.

The original word ‘patent’ has come up from the latin term ‘patere’, which means ‘to lay open’ or ‘available for public usage’. Sometimes it is also related to the term ‘letters patent’, which marks to the royal decree granting exclusive rights to patentee. Unlike copyright, patent registration is not granted on giving mere suggestion or idea. An idea of mere manufacturing machine does not comes under the purview of obtaining registration of patents in India.

He can prevent all others from making or using the patented process. A patentee has also the right to assign the patent, grant licenses under, or otherwise deal with it for any consideration. These rights created by statute are circumscribed by various conditions and limitations.
