What is a patent?

A patent is an exclusive right granted for an invention. More specifically, it is a product or process that provides a new way of doing something, or that offers a new technical solution to a problem. In Australia, if you are an inventor or a person entitled to be assigned the invention, you can apply to register a device, substance, method or process that is new and inventive under the Patents Act 1990 (Cth). If you register a patent under this legislation, you can stop anyone else from using that invention without your permission for a number of years.
