A patent is a legal document that provides exclusive rights to the inventor or owner of a invention for a specified period, typically 20 years from the date of filing. This exclusive right allows the patent holder to prevent others from making, using, selling, or importing the patented invention without their permission. Patents are a crucial aspect of intellectual property law and serve various important purposes:
To obtain a patent an inventor must file a patent application with the Australian Patent Office (IP Australia) which can be quite complex to draft and ensure the invention is protected. The application undergoes a thorough examination process to determine if the invention meets the criteria for patentability, including novelty, inventiveness, and utility. If granted, the patent gives the inventor the exclusive right to use and commercialise the invention in Australia for the specified period.
