    Filing for a patent on an idea, innovation or invention is a critical step to protecting that intellectual property. By filing for a patent, you
    demonstrate that you were the first to come up with the idea and it prevents others from coming up with the same idea, innovation or invention and claiming
    they were first. A patent filing includes a compulsory registration with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). You must provide all of the
    details of the intellectual property, which is then published in an official diary, so that everyone knows who owns it.

    Before filing for a patent, it is very important to keep the idea, innovation or invention secret because making it public prematurely can possibly
    invalidate it. There will usually be a long period between the beginning of the project and the final submission of the patent application, particularly
    during the study, design, and drafting phases, in which you will have no proof or evidence of your copyright on this ongoing project.

    During these significant stages, it is possible protect your idea, innovation or invention by copyright. By filing a copyright at each phase of the
    development, you can file for copyright to certify:

    - The next phase in the project

    copyright is not a substitute for a patent, which must registered at the National Office of Industrial Property at WIPO. A patent is extremely important
    and highly strategic in protecting your idea or your business, so do not hesitate to call a lawyer or a patent consultant.
