Why a Patent
A Patent on a design protects the inventors investment in research and development from being exploited by others
A Patent consists of several drawings and designs relating to the invention. The drawings may differ of the final product however it is the overall design and workings of the invention that stipulates the Patent Protected.
If a person is found to be exploiting a Patent they may find that they have broken a law and again finding themselves becoming part of legal proceedings to order to protect the Patent
