What is an invention?

An invention can be a new invention, product, method, process, or design that is a breakthrough or provides improvements over existing ones. It often requires creativity, clever thinking, expertise, and research efforts to create a new and useful solution.

Inventions are protected by exclusive rights through the issuance of a patent or utility solution certificate.

Importance of patent registration

Registering a patent is important because it brings many benefits to the registrant. Here are some important reasons:

  1. Protecting intellectual property rights: Patent registration helps protect the intellectual property rights of the registrant for an invention or innovation. It ensures that the owner has the exclusive right to use, sell, or transfer their invention.
  2. Preventing copying: When there is a new idea or product, patent registration helps prevent unauthorized copying or use by others. This helps protect your creative work and ensures that you have the legal right to control the use of your product or technology.
  3. Creating business opportunities: Patent registration provides the registrant with business opportunities and profit from their invention. By owning intellectual property rights, the registrant can earn royalties from the use, sale, or licensing of the invention to other companies and generate income from this.
  4. Increasing brand value: When a company has intellectual property rights, it creates an increased brand value. The exclusive right to use a unique product or technology helps create a competitive advantage and attracts interest from customers and investors.
  5. Encouraging innovation: Patent registration encourages individuals and organizations to invent and innovate. Having a clear process for patent registration encourages people with new ideas and advanced technology to share and develop.

In summary, patent registration benefits the registrant by protecting intellectual property rights, preventing copying, creating business opportunities, and increasing brand value. Additionally, it encourages innovation and technological progress.

When do clients need to carry out the procedures for renewal of trademark registration in Vietnam?

Under Circular No 01/2007/TT-BKHCN (Article 20.4.b), Clients should note the following provisions when renewing trademark registration:

Pursuant to Circular 01/2007 / TT-BKHCN – Article 20, Clause 20.4. item b. Amendment, changing of protection title holder, narrowing of the scope of protection, maintenance, and extension of validity of a protection title must note the renewal of trademark registration in Vietnam as follows:

– Within 06 months prior to the expiration date, the Certificate holder must submit an extension request to the NOIP.
The Certificate holder can renew it late, but the deadline for renewing is not more than 06 months from the date of expiration of the protection term. In this case, in addition to having to pay the renewal fee, the Certificate holder has to pay a late renewal fee (10% of the renewal fee for each late month). Therefore, trademark owners should pay attention when renewing the trademark registration on time to avoid the expiration of the trademark protection title, affecting production and business activities.
