Patents FAQ

What are patents?
A patent for an invention grants a property right for that invention to the inventor. This right is the right to exclude others from making or selling the invention, and it must be enforced by the patent holder.* Patents are public
records, which means you can look at them for free, and these days there are ways to find them online. (See below.)
