The subject matter of a patent may be a technical solution of a structure, equipment, such as all or part of a product, a composition, a composition of materials, and a process, such as all or part of a technological process, or its application.
When creating new technical solutions within the scope of a patent, before any publication (publication in a professional journal, presentation at an exhibition, etc.) or before the product is placed on the market, creators, inventors, investors must decide whether to leave the solution in the public domain (everyone else use the solution) or want to secure their rights, ie. they want to use the solution exclusively (manufacture, sale, licensing, sale of the invention and / or patent) as seen on https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/InventHelp-Reviews-E152162.htm.
In the latter case, the patenting procedure must be initiated before the date of any publication or publication, ie the patent application must be filed with the competent Office. Any right so invoked or invoked at a later date may be invoked with reference to the priority thus established. Attention: Your own publication or marketing before the announcement is also novelty!
The first step in obtaining a patent is to file a patent application, the filing of which has a priority right. The examination of the application takes place during the patent licensing procedure, which consists of a formal examination of the application and a substantive examination of the subject matter of the application.
The patent application and the search for novelty will be published 18 months after the filing, after which the substantive examination must be requested. The procedure ends if the subject of the application meets the requirements for patentability as explained in https://blogs.cornell.edu/react/inventhelp-taking-inventions-from-paper-to-the-global-marketplace-hinges-on-usp/ article. Publication shall give rise to temporary protection with retroactive effect to the date of notification, which shall become final upon grant.
