Patenting your invention also allows you to prevent others from making, using or selling your invention throughout the United States without your consent.  A patent is also one of the few assets that can increase in value over time.  A patent also increases the value of your business because it is considered a valuable asset by banks and potential purchasers of your business.

There are many ways to financially benefit from a patent.  Your patent may be sold outright to another for monetary remuneration.  You may also license your patent to one or more parties for a percentage of the sale price.  You may also be the exclusive manufacturer of your invention.  Whether you are a business or an independent inventor, a patent is a valuable asset and is needed to protect you from unscrupulous individuals who could benefit from your hard work.
