See 6.1 Remedies for the Patentee regarding the various remedies that a patent holder may invoke in the framework of the enforcement of its patent rights.

A patent entitles its holder to prohibit third parties from making use of an invention without the holder's prior consent. See 2.1 Actions Available Against Infringement for the various acts of direct and indirect infringement that a patent holder may prohibit and 6.1 Remedies for the Patentee for the various remedies against infringement (injunctive relief and damages). The patent-holder may only exercise its patent rights within their respective limitations, as further described in 2.2 Third-party Remedies to Remove Effects of Intellectual Property Right.

The patent-holder may also assign (sell) or license (grant a right of use to) its patent rights, as further described in 10 Assignment and Licensing.

The patent-holder has certain obligations, namely the payment of the respective office fees and the sufficient provisioning of the Belgian market with the patented products or processes (at the risk of being forced, in exceptional circumstances, to accept a compulsory licence).
