The Patent Act of 1970 and the Patent Rules of 1972 govern patents in India. A patent has a 20-year lifespan. In most circumstances, this period is limited, but it can only be stretched by an act of congress, and it can only be prolonged for a few years in rare cases.
Following the patent registration process, an individual or a company gains intellectual property rights to an innovation. If your product is distinctive, the government will grant you full ownership of it. It gives you complete control over the creation, use, sale, and import of the product or services and prevents others from doing so.
This refers to when an inventor has already filed a patent in another nation and now intends to do so in the same. It is mandatory to file the application for an Indian patent within 12 months following the first filing.
When there are no other applications or references to any other applications pending at the Indian Patent Office, this form of application is filed. For regular applications, the priority date and filing date are the same.
The PCT International application allows you to file a patent application in various countries, with a total of 142 countries. It could take anywhere from 30-31 months from the international filing date to enter each country and obtain protection.
Within 31 months after the international filing date, you can submit this application.
