As early as the mid-18th century, the English courts applied the rule that it is not the person who kept the invention under lock and key, but he who disclosed it for the public benefit, who should enjoy the advantages associated with the patent over the said invention. e. 20 Publication consequently guarantees that third parties, while inhibited from unauthorized uses, will have full, concrete knowledge of the invention, because the description, together with the application, must make it possible for a person skilled in the art to put it into practice.

Thus a second-class innovation would more easily obtain a patent which, as mentioned, would have very similar protection to a first-class innovation. e. to promote (genuine) innovation. Moreover, if the Proposed Directive allowing dual protection (article 23: 1. ‘The same invention may form the subject-matter, simultaneously or successively, of a patent application and a utility model application. 2. A utility model which has been granted shall be deemed to be ineffective where a patent relating to the same invention has been granted and published’) is approved, the conflict will increase, as a patent for invention which is at risk because of its insufficient Patent protection of innovations 35 level of inventiveness would still be granted exclusive protection up to the normally quite satisfactory 10-year limit.
