Rights

Updated Apr 19, 2012   //   Reference

A Right is a legal entitlement for your IP (e.g. an invention, trademark or design) which excludes others from performing the same action or acquiring the same creation. Rights exist in one Region, but there may be several Rights in different regions within the same Family.

The Rights table shows all the Rights associated with a certain Family or Portfolio, depending on the context.
