Why Enterprises Need International Patent Protection
Glancing at recent headlines, anyone can see evidence of the patent wars: Google, Samsung, and so many others. Watching the titans of the tech industry slug it out makes it obvious to any observer just how important an international patent company is to any multinational enterprise’s success.
International patent protection is vital to safeguarding an enterprise’s vital intellectual property (IP). Every company relies on its innovations. Patents make it possible to safely utilize those innovations abroad, opening doors to vast new markets and manufacturing opportunities.
Unfortunately, obtaining an international patent isn’t a simple process. It requires an investment of time and can accrue significant costs. So why apply for a patent at all, particularly when an enterprise isn’t sure yet whether it’s going multinational or not?
Because international patents are an initial expense that pays off immensely in the long run. Securing intellectual property ensures safe, stable expansions into potential markets later. Even if an enterprise is conflicted over whether it can find a target market on the international scene, securing one’s IP for the future is far more beneficial than any short-term savings.
What is a Patent?
A patent is the right granted to an individual or enterprise, reserving for them the exclusive use of IP, such as a new process or invention. A patent prevents other entities from making, selling, using, or otherwise profiting off of that invention. However, patents are limited in scope, usually lasting a certain time period, and only apply within the borders of the issuing country.
How to Patent Your Product
As a matter of course, most enterprises move quickly to file a patent domestically, but then balk when it comes to the next step: international patent application. Whether this is because of the expenses involved, the complexity and demands of international patent applications, or the various demands of each target country’s international patent law, filing an international patent should nevertheless be made a top priority.
