The well-devised and significant law solely responsible and effective for proper registration of inventions in all related economic fields, and well-rounded protection of these, within the concerned jurisdiction, is distinctly known as the Patent Act or the Patent Law.

Businesses can broadly be classified into two main and major categories as national-level businesses and international or worldwide level businesses.
