What is a Patent? A patent is a grant by a government acting through its Patent Office. The subject matter of a patent is an invention, and the person entitled to receive the patent grant is the inventor or the inventors heirs and assigns. A United States patent gives the patent owner The right to exclude others from making, using or selling the invention throughout the United States. In exchange, the inventor is required to disclose the invention in a patent application filed with the Patent Office. The invention must be disclosed in sufficient detail to enable a person of ordinary skill in the art to make and use the invention. Each patent application is a unique and very technical legal document.
