Change in name of Applicant (Assignment Agreement + Form 6)

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.

Changing one’s name, adding initials or even just one letter is regular in India, more so than in many parts of the world. We believe in Vaastu, numerology, and it’s common for women from many communities to change their first and last names after marriage.

Given how common this is, you would expect the procedure of your name change application to be fairly quick. But it is, in fact, pretty lengthy, with name change forms to be filled out and even requiring a newspaper advertisement.

Even though it is lengthy, the procedure for changing your name is quite simple. All you need to do is to understand how it is done, what steps need to be taken, what are the documents essential for submitting the request, and you are good to go.
