An invention, work, or idea originally created and designed by a person can be entitled for intellectual property protection through patent application. Patented works and products help avoid illegal reproduction and distribution of one's intellectual property, and at the same time solve various issues of patent infringement and other prohibited acts. Anyone caught and proven to commit such action may be ground for a lawsuit or patent litigation. Through patent search tools and applications, owners and inventors may find solutions to this kind of problems as well as discover the latest industry trends for potential product and work development. Patent holders can also access every information pertaining to their works as listed in the patent database after the process is completed and the patent application is granted.
