Patent your inventions…Bnoskka appeals to Apostle Kwadwo Safo
Benjamin Oduro Arhin Jnr affectionately called Bnoskka, an Assistant Lecturer at the School of Creative Arts, Univeristy of Education, Winneba has appealed to Founder of Kristo Asafo, Apostle Kwadwo Safo (KANTANKA) to patent his inventions.
He said it would be of great interest in the world to have a Patent Title granted to Apostle Safo for his numerous inventions.
Bnoskka who is also a Creative Business and Intellectual Property Consultant said these recently when speaking on Patent Rights as a guest on ‘Mmranim’ show on Kantanka TV.
According to him, Ghana’s Patent Act 2003, Act 657, was an inheritance from the British 1623 Statute of Monopolies, the Statute of Anne of 1710, the Madrid Protocol of 1891, the PNDC Law (1616) and the current 2003 Act 657.
He explained that there were three types of patent: Utility, Design, and Plant for which Apostle’s inventions qualify him to be captured under utility and plant patents.
“Utility patents are issued for inventions that are novel and useful. Design patents protect the design or image of a product. Plant patents are issued to applicants for plants that can reproduce,” Bnoskka elaborated.
Consequently, he made the passionate appeal to Apostle Kwadwo Safo to try and file patent for his inventions through any of the three types of registrations: National, Regional and International for the sake of African youth future, and to be remembered worldwide for having invented a utility which has been patented.
“This will be of the interest to our nation Ghana, and to the African continent for posterity and a heritage for future generations,” he noted.
