Patent Annuities

Don’t forget to renew your patent rights, or they will lapse

Patent Annuities are fees that a patent owner has to pay in order to renew a granted patent. Otherwise, the patent will lapse and you, as the patent owner, will lose your rights before the regular expiration date. The amount and frequency of this renewal fee differ according to national or international law, but often they are due on an annual basis, hence “Annuities”. In other words, the payment is necessary if you have decided to keep a patent in your portfolio, but it is an administrative task you simply want to be executed in the most efficient way without spending unnecessary efforts or money on it. So why not leave it to an experienced annuity provider like Zacco?
