It's not always sapient to go for filing a patent for some invention. Patents are expensive investments that do not always guarantee good returns. Defensive publications are documents that provide descriptions and artwork of a product, device or method so that it enters the public domain and becomes prior art. This powerful preemptive disclosure prevents other parties from obtaining a patent on the product, device or method. It enables the original inventor to ensure that they have access to their invention by preventing others from later making patent claims on it. It also means that they do not have to shoulder the cost of patent applications.
Summarizing, a defensive publication helps you:
- Minimize Patent Expenditure
- Secure Freedom to Operate
- Reduce Litigation Risk
