Why You Need a Patent

Make sure that you are aware of what a patent does and doesn't protect you from.

According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, “A patent is a property right granted by the Government of the United States of America to an inventor ‘to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling the invention throughout the United States or importing the invention into the United States for a limited time in exchange for public disclosure of the invention when the patent is granted.”
