About the patent
A patent is a sole right to refuse others to exploit the invention for business purposes. The patent system is based on the applicant's description of the invention sufficiently well so that anyone with knowledge in the same subject area is able to understand the invention.
What to think about before applying for a patent
You should find out if the invention is basically patentable. The invention must be new, i.e not published anywhere in the world - nor by yourself - before your application has been submitted.
