Patents

A patent protects a technical invention (product, part of a product, process, etc.) in all technology-related fields.
Many strategic issues justify the protection of your inventions through patents.
A patent grants the right to prohibit unauthorised third parties from freely using the invention.
The patent enhances the value of your company as an intangible asset and can be a source of income (patent licensing subject to the payment of royalties, assignment of patent rights, etc.).
With regards to your competitors, the creation of a patent portfolio also gives your company visibility in terms of innovation.
