Patents: the holder's rights versus others' rights

The Sirris Patent Cell is publishing a short video with experts for understanding what rights a patent confers.

The Belgian code of economic right, Article XI.29. says that a patent confers the right to prohibit any others, in the absence of the patent holder's consent, from manufacturing, offering, marketing, using or even the importation or detention for these purposes of the product covered by the patent.
Similar provisions are given for the methods covered by the patent and the products obtained by these methods.

But what exactly does this mean? Isabelle Surdej, European Patent Attorney with V.O. Patents & Trademarks explains this for us using a very concrete example. (in French)
