Imagine you start your own company, and it is centered around a product that, though not necessarily revolutionary, is unique and efficient. The product is very helpful to customers, and competitors who have similar (though not exactly the same) products are envious of your invention.
However, despite your genius, you are still an entrepreneur, and entrepreneurs are going to make mistakes here and there. In this hypothetical case, let's say that the business owner doesn't protect his or her product with a patent. If that was the case, then other competitors would be free to replicate your product, once they discovered a way to replicate it.
Obviously, no business owner wants that. Their products (or trade secrets, or ideas, etc.) are their lifeblood, and they need to be protected. However, not every business owner is blessed with the legal knowledge to obtain a patent (or trademark, or copyright, etc.) and thus they may struggle with the process of getting this important legal protection, and then enforcing it.
