A patent is a limited right granted to anyone who invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, article of manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof. Some types of patents add the qualification of “utility” to distinguish them from other types of patents (e.g. design patents and plant patents). Examples of particular types of utility patents for inventions include articles of manufacture (such as circuit boards and RFID devices), compositions of matter (for example, metal alloys and pharmaceutical compounds), machinery and processes for accomplishing a particular result.
The procedure for granting patents, the requirements placed on the patentee, and the extent of the exclusive rights vary widely between countries according to national laws and international agreements. Typically, however, a patent application must include one or more claims defining the invention which must be new, inventive, and useful or industrially applicable. In many countries, certain subject areas are excluded from patents, such as business methods and mental acts. The exclusive right granted to a patentee in most countries is the right to prevent others from making, using, selling, or distributing the patented invention without permission.
