A "patent" is a grant of a property right by the Government to an inventor. The United States Constitution gives Congress the right to provide for patent protection in legislation in order to encourage useful inventions. A patent does not give an inventor the right to make, use, or sell the invention as the patentee may have to hold to other laws and regulations to make, use, or sell the invention. Because a patent is a property right, it may be sold, licensed, mortgaged, assigned or transferred, given away, or abandoned.

The patent itself provides a detailed description of the invention, and how it is used or how to make it. A patent lawsuit enables the owner to exclude others from making, using or selling the invention for the life of the patent. The patent specification must be specific enough that a person skilled in the art could make and use the invention, and at the end of the specification, the inventor must include one or more claims that precisely put the public on notice of what the patent owner can exclude others from making, selling or using. A single patent may include multiple claims, each of which is treated as a distinct invention.
