What is a patent

Patent is the grant of a property right to the inventor that gives him a temporary monopoly on the manufacturing and sale of the object of the invention.
In this way inventors are granted the right to exclude others from making, using, selling exporting and importing the objects that fall within the patent protection.
Patent registration starts with filing the application with the Ufficio Italiano Brevetti e Marchi (Italian Patents and Trademarks Office) (U.I.B.M), directly or through the Chamber of Commerce.
The application must be presented on special forms and accompanied by:
  •     a short summary
  •     the description of the invention
  •     one or more drawings related with the description
  •     payment receipt of government fees

Once filed, the application is examined by the U.I.B.M. to make sure that the invention complies with the requirements set forth by the law.
As an average, three years elapse from the filing date.
