Historical background of patents

(8) A. Patents are also granted to new chemical compounds, foods, and medicinal products, likewise to the processes for producing them. Patents can even be granted to new plant or animal forms developed through genetic engineering.

(9) B. Being first in the innovative field is not always primary as the business world is sometimes rather unfair and cruel to pioneers. In order to protect one’s innovation and introduce any invention one should take some measures to patent it.

(10) C. The first recorded patent for an industrial invention is the one granted in 1421in Florence to the architect and engineer Filippo Brunelleschi. The patent gave him a three-year monopoly on the manufacture of a barge with hoisting gear used to transport marble.

(11) D. It appears that such privileged grants to inventors spread from Italy to other European nations over the next two centuries. In many cases such grants dealt with the importation and establishment of new industries, as in England at the time of Queen Elizabeth I. It soon became apparent that unlimited duration of exclusive rights created unfair monopolies, and in 1623 Parliament enacted the Statute of Monopolies. American Congress passed the first U.S. Patent Statute in 1790. France enacted its patent system the following year. By the end of the 19th century, many countries had patent laws, and today there exist approximately 100 separate jurisdictions regarding patents.

(12) E. Patent is a government grant of the exclusive right to make, use, or sell an invention, usually for a limited period. Patents are granted to new and useful machines, manufactured products, and industrial processes as well as to significant improvements of existing ones.

Vitamins and minerals contained in foodstuffs make our food nutritious, tasty, healthy, prevent people from a lot of diseases, strengthen our immunity system.
