0- Why Patent?
Patent, in general, is a protection certificate given to technological innovations. Most technological innovations are directly related to competition. Companies have to make innovation continuously in order to draw away. This is also applicable to other institutions and people.
- Cost-oriented competition
- Competition with technological superiority
Companies can apply cost-oriented competition in various periods. But if you look the whole of a country, it may not always be the right strategy for every country. For instance, for the companies in Turkey, a cost-oriented competition strategy is not appropriate. Tax rates, energy rates, raw material and financial costs are very high. Even if all this is left aside, it is not possible for labor costs in Turkey to compete with labor costs of countries such as China, India, Vietnam and Bangladesh. Consequently, in this case, if exceptions are set aside, companies of Turkey do not have a chance rather than choosing technological superiority based competition.
Technological race in the world depends on making an innovation in a product, production method or service even if small or large and adopting these innovations, especially patents.
What industry generally understands when it comes to patent is “Making a world-shaking invention”. However, the patent is a protection certificate given to inventions, innovations that are new, applicable to industry and familiar to the state of the art. Patent, in the most general expression, is a privilege granted by the state to innovators. As the definition suggests, the patent is not only granted to the world-shaking inventions, but if there is an innovation that provides a technical advantage made by the manufacturing or servicer, this is likely to get patent.

OUR PATENT SERVICES
Before patent application, it is very important to identify patent applications made in the world regarding the subject of innovation, that is to say the patent research. Since, no matter how much people or companies who are dealing with innovation dominate their subjects,
Patent application is not solely submission of the values obtained as a result of an innovation activity to the patent office in an official petition for legal protection. The strong patents are needed in order to bring maximum financial gain to the company and make it superior to its competitors.
Obtaining a patent right means that the state gives the monopoly rights to the ones who are engaged in Innovation, R&D or New Product Development activities in the production and sales of the products related to the technical subject it has developed.
According to Paris international agreement also signed by Turkey on intellectual property and TRIPS agreement of World Trade Organization (WTO), patents are protected only in the countries in which they are registered. If the patented product, production method or system will be used abroad, it is necessary to apply for patent and get protection in those countries.
Patents may be subject to all transactions about properties such as sale, leasing, inheritance, etc. The most used of these transactions in the market are license (lease) and transfer transactions. Both the applications of patents (and utility models) and the use of registered patents (and utility models)
