Patents grant inventors the right to use their product in the marketplace or to profit by transferring that right to someone else. Depending on the type of invention, patent rights in the U.S. are valid for up to 20 years. Qualifying items include new machines, technological improvements, and manufactured goods, including the appearance of a product.
