What is Patent Protection?  
In most first world nations there exists a system for protecting intellectual property, the product of a person or a company’s originality or creativity. Put simply a patent can be thought of as a copyright for an invention. A patent gives the patent holder a right to stop others from producing, selling or using an invention without authority. To patent something (whether a product or a process) one has to demonstrate originality that is unique enough to distinguish it from existing inventions and it must also be innovatively different to any other invention.
How Long Does Patent Protection Last?  
Patents can offer protection for up to 20 years. The process of patenting is a highly complex one which can take anywhere between 2 and 5 years on average for a patent to be successfully granted. The inventor does however receive immediate interim protection upon lodging a patent application.
