The primary role of a patent is to promote the progress of science and the useful arts by granting inventors the exclusive right to their respective inventions and discoveries in exchange for public disclosure of the invention. Through the issuance of patents, technological advancement is encouraged by providing incentives to invent, invest in, and disclose new technology worldwide. Certicom holds patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office and is also filing patents in Canada, Japan, and the European Union.
