A patent is a legal right that gives the owner an exclusive right to exploit an invention, in a specific territory, and for a specific period (20 years).

Being an exclusive right, it allows the patent holder to prevent others from producing, selling, or using the patented invention without the authorization; this authorization is commonly called a license.

Therefore, patenting an innovative idea has a potentially high value that can be exploited on the market, making the company more competitive or allowing it to exclusively launch an innovative product or service.
