We've talked about patents quite a bit on this blog in the past few months, and for good reason. These vital legal protections allow businesses to operate without fearing that their novel inventions are being copied by other businesses. However, patents aren't a one-size-fits-all application. There are actually three different types of patents, and today we're going to talk about these classes of patents.
Let's say that you invent an incredible product. Obviously, this doesn't just happen overnight. You need to invest in your product; you need to fine-tune your product; you need to develop and create the product. Once it is finally finished (this could take months, if not years), you are ready to patent it so that your hard work is legally protected.
