Service of Registration for invention protection in Vietnam

The invention is one of the four most popular concepts and most interested by people when it comes to Industrial Property Rights in addition to Trademarks and Industrial design concepts and Utility Solutions.

The invention is one of the four most popular concepts and most interested by people when it comes to Industrial Property Rights in addition to Trademarks and Industrial design concepts and Utility Solutions.

The difference to distinguish between an invention and a utility solution is that the application of utility solution confirms the creativity of the solution when it is filed and therefore is recorded on different proprietary periods. Inventions are valid from the date of issue and last for twenty years from the filing date, while the utility solutions are valid from the date of issue and last for ten years from the date of filing the application.

Please note that when submitting an application in accordance with the laws of Vietnam, the title of protection is valid throughout the territory of Vietnam, but is not valid throughout the world even though in order to be granted a certificate of qualification according to the Law of Vietnam, the condition that requires an invention has not been publicly disclosed in the form of use, written description or any other form in the country or abroad before the filing date of the invention registration or prior to the priority date in case the invention enjoys priority right.

Under the provisions of the Law on Intellectual Property 2005 (the Law on amendment in 2009 does not modify this provision), there are provisions in Point 12, Article 4 - Interpretation of terms: Invention means a technical solution in the form of a product or process which is intended to solve a problem by application of natural laws.
The Vietnamese Law stipulated in the Law on Intellectual Property Amended and Supplemented in 2009, in Article 58 on General Conditions for inventions is protected as "An invention shall be eligible for protection in the form of the grant of an invention patent when it satisfies the following conditions: (a) It is novel; (b) It is of an inventive nature; (c) It is susceptible of industrial application." That means an invention that wants to be protected must meet all three necessary and sufficient conditions to be novel, has a creative and capable ability to apply in industry.
Starting from the characteristics that the invention has commercial value, value in transfer of industrial property rights (transfer of registration rights to inventions, transfer of ownership to inventions), the recognition of ownership rights to Industry patent in general and ownership rights to inventions are very important in recognizing the effort, creativity and commercial value brought to the authors and owners of the invention.
