Uses for provisional patents

A provisional patent (cost: R19,950 plus vat) is the first patent filed by an inventor. If patent protection is sought, corresponding complete patents must be filed in select countries within 12 months. Provisional patents are also useful tools for deterrence and marketing – see the Pantene example.
