Your ideas and suggestions may be valuable. You need to protect them in order to assert your rights. Your ideas may already have been patented and published, or been envisaged or even developed by our Group, or in a similar form. Without a patent, establishing exactly who is behind an innovation may be a long and costly process. PSA Group must also be protected. For all these reasons, and with a view to our potential cooperation, we ask that your proposal be accompanied by a patent.
