This year marks the 400th anniversary of the official grant of Britain’s first ever patent. But for those of you who are a little late to the patent party and want to know how they can help drive your business forward, listen up! Inventors can apply to the government for patents in order to prevent other competitors from bringing a similar invention to the market without permission, albeit for a restricted period. If successful, i.e. if patent protection is granted (by the Intellectual Property Office or IPO in the UK), the invention becomes the ‘property’ of the inventor.
If you are aiming to take the overseas markets by storm with your invention, it might be worth considering safeguarding of your intellectual property rights to the invention by applying for a European or global patent. In most cases, non-English speaking jurisdictions insist on patent applications being in the language required for examination and approval by the local patent office, meaning you will need to have your application translated.
