The patent is an exclusive legal right provided by the Government for an invention. There are two types of patent, namely, product and process patents. The registration of a patent confers on the patentee the exclusive right to use, manufacture or sell his invention for the term of the patent. The term of a patent is for 20 years. To be patentable, an invention must satisfy certain criteria, like industrial applicability, new and inventive, not frivolous, etc. There are also certain categories of inventions which are declared as non-patentable.
