If you have a new invention that solves a specific problem in any field of technology or industry, and you wish to impede your competitors or any other people from exploiting your hard work, then it is prudent to have your invention patented.

In short, patent provides you with a set of exclusive rights to exclude others from manufacturing, using, selling, or distributing your new invention without your permission for a period of time. Hence, it can be said that you are the sole person permitted to exploit your new invention.

We at Author Intellectual Property are able to assist you in every aspect of patent, from advising you on the patentability of your invention to patent drafting, from filing new patent applications locally and internationally to renewal of your patent, and beyond.

Utility Innovation

Utility Innovation is another type of intellectual property that is very similar to patent. It is an exclusive rights conferred to an innovator that manages to come up with an incremental improvement to an existing product or process. With the exclusive right, the innovator can work the incremental invention by preventing others from exploiting the same without prior consent.

In Malaysia, utility innovation differs from patent in the sense that the scope of protection is narrower and the initial duration of protection is shorter. However, the requirements to obtain a certificate of utility innovation are less stringent than patent.

It is also known as “utility model”, “minor patent”, “petty patent”, and “innovation patent” in some other countries such as Australia.
