Purpose of the Patent System
The utility model system is one for protecting and encouraging practical devices and promoting their use. To achieve this, the purpose thereof is to “grant utility model rights in exchange for publicizing technology”. Specifically, technology is accumulated and published technology is used through the publishing of inventions, and inventors are granted exclusive rights to thereby expedite commercialization and instill the desire to invent, ultimately contributing to commercial development.
