This will ensure the best chances of success in securing patent protection for your valuable inventions.
Patents are the lifeblood of today's global economy. Without a patent, there is the ever-present risk that competitors –– especially large companies with substantial financial resources –– will simply make and sell knock-offs of your invention,. A patent can afford you a chance to compete by excluding competitors from making, using, selling, and importing your product. Don't let your innovations fall victim to a copycat.
