With: Mayte Montero, Teacher, gaitera and inventor.
María Jose Lamus Becerra, Deputy Superintendent for Industrial Property. Superintendency of Industry and Commerce.
Musician Mayté Rosario Montero Laguna shares with us how, based on the simple need to streamline the mouth piece exchanging process for her concerts, a creation was born. It later earned her an invention patent granted by the Superintendency of Industry and Commerce, a recognition that gave her the exclusive right to commercially exploit her invention for a period of 20 years and may prevent others from making, selling or marketing her invention without her consent.
