The difference is

Robust patent protection is imperative to protect the unique processes and technologies that constitute the backbone of your business. Innovations require time, money, and hard work. Obtaining a patent ensures that the fruits of your labor are yours alone and that competitors cannot reap benefits from the investments you have made. Without a patent, competitors are free to use your invention without investing any resources in obtaining them, eradicating any competitive advantage your invention may have given you over your competitors. Failure to apply for patent protection in a timely manner can mean that you are giving away your innovations to your competitors.

Patents are essential in securing your niche in the market. They protect the features that make your services and products unique by ensuring that competitors are legally unable to imitate them. This allows for your business to spend less time fending off knockoffs and focus on establishing a strong connection with its target audience. As your patents prevent others from using the features that make your business successful, you are able to present your target audience with distinctive services and products and build your client base. Patents empower you to carve out and maintain a place within the market that competitors legally cannot encroach upon, giving your business an advantage over competitors.
