What is a Patent?
A patent is simply this - its legal protection for your idea that allows you to profit from your idea for years to come. And it gives you the legal right to stop others from "borrowing" your idea unless they:
- Obtain your permission first, then;
- buy the patent from you, and
- pay a yearly licensing fee - or - a royalty payment based on sales

It's really no secret that maintaining a competitive edge in today’s “idea economy” demands that you guard your intellectual property rights by taking advantage of our US patent laws. Because the real value of most businesses, big and small, isn't the value of the real estate they own. Nor is it the value in their equipment, manufacturing facilities or other physical property they own.
In today's economy, the most valuable assets that many companies may own are knowledge-based assets such as proprietary know-how and how the creative ways these "ideas" are applied to their existing business....or even a new business.
You see, the first company to capitalize on a new idea or innovation usually has a huge advantage in putting manufacturing, marketing, and distribution channels in place. But, these advantages are typically only a temporary barrier.
Because when one business begins to implement a successful idea, other businesses find out about it very quickly and move immediately to try and mimic or copy the idea.
That's when a patent goes to work. It establishes strong and effective monopoly rights for your business by setting legal barriers that prevent the competition from copying your idea. Without adequate patent protection, it'd just a matter of time before existing competitors and even new ones, enter your market and steal your idea. Ultimately, it results in these other companies taking money out of your pocket.
When you're granted a US Patent, it becomes a business assets that can increase your profit margins, your market share, and contribute to broader name recognition for your business and its product lines. And in a crowded technical field, it's not at all unusual for a business to protect improvements for an existing device with a broad array of patents.
These multiple patents are very often used as leverage during negotiations between business rivals and often lead to licensing arrangements between the parties.
In its simplest form, a patent is your monopoly - a monopoly granted by the United States Government to an inventor to let that inventor monetize his or her creativity.
