Grant of patent empowers patentee with following rights :
- If the patent relates to a product, the patentee has the exclusive rights to that product and he can prevent any one (except the government or the person authorized by government ) from using, marketing , making, exporting/importing without his consent
- If the patent relates to any process, the patentee reserves the exclusive right to prevent third party (except the govenrment or person authorised by government ) from using,marketing , exporting or importing the process or the product obtined as a direct result of that process.
Here i would like to mention that there are several other conditions, those are listed in section 47 and section 49 of patent act. I will discuss this in later posts .
