Today, I want to discuss with you what a patent is and why you might want one.
I encounter many people that believe they need a patent in order to sell a product. That is simply not true. There is no law that says you need a patent to sell a product and, in fact, most products you find for sale today, are not covered by a patent.
The reason you want a patent is to stop others from copying your idea. In a sense, once you obtain a patent, you can use it as a weapon against your competitors. Specifically, when you see someone copying your invention, which we call “infringing,” the patent allows you to take that person to court and ask the judge to order them to stop infringing and, hopefully, to pay you for that infringement and the legal fees and costs you had to spend suing them.
