A patent is a form of intellectual property that gives its owner the legal right to exclude others from making, using, selling, and importing an invention for a limited period of years, in exchange for publishing an enabling public disclosure of the invention.

In most countries patent rights fall under civil law and the patent holder needs to sue someone infringing the patent in order to enforce his or her rights. In some industries patents are an essential form of competitive advantage; in others they are irrelevant.



Invention is a creation of technical ideas utilizing the laws of nature to produce the technical effect, solve problem(s) and achieve the expected purpose(s). The invention must be of "technical character" to the extent that the problem must be solved by technical means in the relevant technical field. Mere discovery, scientific theories, presentation of information and aesthetic creations do not meet the definition of invention. Q

Utility Model

A utility model is a creation of technical ideas relating to the shape or structure of an article or combination of articles which occupies certain space, utilizing the laws of nature. Manufacturing method, processing method, using method, chemical substance or compound without concrete shape or structure does not meet the definition of utility model.


A design means the creation made in respect of the shape, pattern, color, or any combination thereof, of an article as a whole or in part by visual appeal. A design patent application may also be filed for computer generated icons (Icons) and graphic user interface (GUI) applied to an article.
