The letters patent entitles its owner the right to explore, with exclusivity, the object of the invention, and to impede others from producing, commercializing or importing the object of the patent, while it is in force, without the owner’s permission. The patent of invention is in force for a twenty (20)-year term counted as of the filing date of the application and the appropriate moment for applying for a patent is soon after the conclusion of the invention, even before its disclosure.
The care of your patent of invention or utility model does not end upon obtaining the Letters Patent. It is necessary, as of the beginning of the third year, counting from the filing date, to attend to the payment of the yearly renewal fee. In addition, a permanent monitoring is essential in order that others do not attempt to patent something similar or something based on your invention and also to prevent others from reproducing the object of your patent or in case this happens, proper remedies should be adopted.
