A patent is an exclusive right granted to an inventor for an invention that protects the inventor against any unauthorized use of such a patent, the patent is mostly granted for a period of 20 years and the patent holder can take legal action against any unauthorized use of such patent.The patent holder has the right to grant an exclusive or non-exclusive license to use the patent to anyone for a specific period, the patent holder shall receive consideration for the license. The licensee’s rights to use the patent shall be limited and the licensee shall pay a royalty to the patent holder out of the profit made by use of such patent.

Therefore, we can say A patent is basically the granting of protection to an invention, which is a means of doing something new or providing a new technical solution to a problem. However, there are some inventions that might not get patents such as discoveries, mathematical methods, commercial methods, plants and animal varieties, scientific theories, etc. Also, methods, surgeries, and treatments that are done on humans and animals do not get patented in some nations.

A creator should always patent the inventions at the earliest to protect them from infringement. A provisional patent application can be filed when the invention is at a patentable stage but still needs some work before it is complete.

A complete specification is a mandatory document to be filled to obtain a patent. This document contains the specifics of the patent according to which the legal right of the inventor is protected. The disclosure should be in simple words so that the same can be understood by anyone skilled in the art who can easily perform the invention.

The Patent holder exercises the right to license the patent for monetary gains or sell the patent to anyone for consideration. It also gives the patent holder secure rights in case of infringement.

The Complete Specification is a techno-legal document which fully and particularly describes the invention and discloses the best method of performing the invention. As the Complete Specification is an important document in the patent proceedings, it is advised that it should be drafted with utmost care without any ambiguity. It is mandatory on the part of an applicant to disclose fully and particularly various features constituting the invention. The disclosure of the invention in a complete specification must be such that a person skilled in the art should be able to perform the invention.
