Patenting is considered a form of protection as well as a source of income, however the details of the process that leads to patenting an idea are not well known to the public. This paper aims to give an overview of the pathway from invention to market, comparing differences and similarities when the inventor is a scientist, a private person or a private company. The three fundamental formal requirements to patent an idea will be explored and discussed as well as costs and benefits of different pathways to patenting.
