A patent offers the exclusive right to the exploitation of technical inventions during the period of validity. Patentable inventions may be complex machines and simple utensils, but also production methods or medicines. An invention is only protected if it is registered as a patent.
MerkWerk does not register patents; this is a different specialism. We work closely with a reputable patent office, also because the protection of products and inventions often coincides with design protection and trademark registration.
