Who may apply for a patent?
« on: February 14, 2012, 03:20:42 AM »
# An application for an ordinary patent may be made by the inventor, his legal representative, or his assignee, either alone or jointly with any other person.

# An application for a patent of addition may be made only by the applicant for the original patent to which it is an addition, if the application for the original patent is pending, or by the registered proprietor of such original patent, if it has been granted.

# A. convention application may be made by any person who has made the application for patent in respect of that invention in  a Convention country or by his assignee or his legal representative.

As far as the patent law is concerned, only the inventor may apply for a patent, with certain exceptions  in the same. If a person who is not the inventor should apply for a patent will be made invalid. The person applying in such a case who falsely states is the inventor would also be subject to criminal penalties.

Yes it is correct that only the inventor may apply for the patent but there are also certain exceptions.
If there are more than one inventor and what if the original inventor is dead.

Although this post is now old, but if someone can answer me then please help.Suppose i am the original inventor of some machine but never applied for patent, but i have evidence through which i can prove in court that i am the original inventor then will the patent of the other inventor, who has been granted patent somehow due to ignorance, will be cancelled?

According to the law, the inventor, or a person to whom the inventor has assigned or is under an obligation to assign the invention, may apply for a patent, with certain exceptions. If the inventor is deceased, the application may be made by legal representatives, that is, the administrator or executor of the estate.
