The Smit & Van Wyk Gauteng patent Attorneys assist clients in various ways including that of consultation. One example of a situation where the guidance of the Smit & Van Wyk Attorneys will be useful is that of knowing the rights that are obtained when a patent application is successful.
Advice will be provided such as that the patent rights are only valid for 20 years according to the specific country’s laws and subject to the renewal fees payment.
In addition the client will be advised on the exploitation rights associated with the invention.
If for example, a person invented a soda machine that is an improvement on another type of soda machine, the rights owner will only be able to commercially exploit their patent rights on the improved machine if the permission of the original rights owner of the machine improved upon is obtained.
