A Canadian patent is a powerful tool for inventors to secure exclusive rights to their invention and protect the inventor’s business interests in the long term. By obtaining a patent, the inventor is granted the right to exclude others from making, using, and/or selling their invention for a period of up to 20 years from the date of filing the patent application. In addition, the inventor may be able to profit from their creativity and capture value from the functional aspects of the invention.
A patentable invention must be novel, non–obvious and useful to be eligible for patent protection. To meet the requirements of patentability, an invention must not have been invented by anyone else before you and must be an improvement that would not have been obvious to a person skilled in the art or science to which the invention pertains.
