The History Of Patent Down The Years

The ancient form of patients existed as early as 500 BC in Greece while others claim that the origins of patents are from the Roman empire. Then the US followed the footsteps and set up the US patent law. The Venetian Patent statue was built in the year of 1474 which was the first European statutory patent system that was developed. During the years of 1474 – 1788 there were over 2000 patents that got granted by Venetian senate.
