Patents and Trademarks
Any organizations in order to distinguish their product from others use certain symbols, signs or logos. This is termed as trademark or patent; it is a kind of intellectual property right. Here the organization has a specific product which is prepared by their own R&D and they try to ascertain that no one uses their products or the concept which was used to prepare their products.
The Cost of Getting A Patent
A patent protects your valuable invention from unauthorized usage. Just imagine you doing all the hard work and someone else taking the credit. You can avoid such a situation by applying for a patent. Once you obtain a patent no one can steal or copy your patent. A patent is nothing but a set of rights that are given by the government in order to protect your invention from any unauthorized usage. A person who disobeys the patent laws is likely to go to jail.
A Patent Application

The patent rights are there for a particular period of time; after which any other person or organizations are free to use the concept or idea. If during these specified period if someone else tries to use the technique for their own benefit then it is illegal and the patentee can take legal action against the offender.
