What is a Patent?

A patent is an exclusive right granted to an inventor or assignee for a new invention, which provides a new way of doing something or offers a new technical solution to a problem. Patents protect intellectual property, allowing inventors to prevent others from making, using, or selling their invention without permission for a certain period.
