Ungranted patent

Ungranted patents are patents that have not yet been granted by the local or regional patent office, but their status is still pending.

In many countries, there are no renewals before a patent is granted, however, the inventor can still restrict others from using, making, selling, and importing the invention in a respective region or country.

The time it takes for a patent to be granted after the application is submitted to a patent office can vary across jurisdictions. Usually, three to four years is typical in most jurisdictions, however, it can take many years in certain scenarios.

During the ungranted time period the inventor can enjoy the patent rights.
