Protecting intellectual and industrial assets is, today more than ever, the essential element of a strategy capable of translating research, creativity and experimentation into real commercial success.
Filing and obtaining a patent are fundamental steps in securing the right to prohibit the unauthorized reproduction and exploitation of one’s invention or utility model.
To that end, the invention or utility model should be kept secret before the relevant patent application is filed.
