, This may come as a surprise to you. Our company has been secretly developing a new and novel method of improving the usefulness of electrical storage devices, commonly called batteries.

Only the scientists who designed it, the engineers who built it, myself and, now, you know of this new invention.

 What I need to know is wha​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​t are our rights in this exciting new product.

 How can we legally protect our intellectual property rights in this matter? 

Are there time limitations on the protections the law grants us in this invention? 

Is there any way we can extend our exclusive rights in this product beyond the normal time that standard intellectual property rights protections last​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍‍​?
