A patent is a monopoly granted and it enables the inventor to control the output and within the limits set by demand,
the price of the patented products. A patent is an exclusive right granted by a country to the owner of an invention
to make, use, manufacture and market the invention, provided the invention satisfies certain conditions stipulated in
the law. Exclusivity of right implies that no one else can make, use, manufacture or market the invention without the
consent of the patent holder. This right is available only for a limited period of time.
Copyright as the name suggests arose as an exclusive right of the author to copy the literature produced by him and stop others from doing so. More so it is a right given by the law to creators of literary, dramatic, musical

of the work
