Patents are industrial property rights
that can be used to protect your technical inventions.

Patents are industrial property rights that enable you to protect your technical inventions. This process includes an examination for formal defects and an assessment for patentability. A state institution consequently grants a patent under the provisions of the Patent Act. The bureaucratic standards, applied to the granting and thus ultimately to the creation of patents are increasing steadily. In order to obtain a patent, it will firstly be examined by a national institution in accordance with the provisions of the Patent Act. This examination contains an assessment on both formal aspects as well as the patentability of the invention itself. The acquisition of a patent and, consequently, the acquisition of exclusive rights to your inventions, are subject to a number of administrative requirements.
