A patent does not provide the affirmative right to practice an invention. Rather, a patent provides the negative right to exclude others from making, using, selling or offering to sell a product, process or design that falls within the scope of the patent. An enterprise with patent protection realizes an economic advantage by being able to sell products at a higher price than might be achieved if there were a number of competitors selling the same product. Additionally, a company may be able to obtain sales by offering features which its competitors cannot offer.
