What is Patent Prosecution and Litigation law practice?
Patent prosecution refers to the process of arguing for the patentability of various inventions, devices, methods or systems. The Indian Patents Act, 1970, recognises product and process patents.
The Patent Prosecution process starts with applying for and receiving a patent from the appropriate government agencies, by asserting the novelty of the Intellectual Property, submission of supplementary materials and documents.
Patent prosecution is not an adversarial legal action against a defendant.
Patent prosecution is a legal practice of utmost importance in jurisdictions where patent applications go through a substantive examination, which requires proving the existence of the inventive step, to determine patent eligibility.
Firms practicing Patent Prosecution help individual inventors and the organizations, in drafting and filing patent applications. They will also help their clients with the development of a comprehensive strategy for IP protection.
Patent litigation is the legal process whereby the owner of the patent enforces their rights by suing another for infringing on their rights; such as by manufacturing or selling the invention without permission.
