Patents are the most generalized way to protect inventors’ rights. A patent is an exclusive right granted by the state for the protection of an invention.
According to international agreements, patents can be obtained for any invention, process or product or a combination thereof, in any technological field (e.g. mechanical or electrical engineering, biotechnology, pharmaceutics, or chemistry).
There are three fundamental criteria for patentability. These are: the invention must be novel; there must be a level of inventiveness; and the invention must be industrially applicable.
