Do patents offer any kind of protection for innovation in delivery or a process?

Almost none.

Even if your stuff is patented that won't stop someone in a remote country that the US has no legal access to copying it right away. Plus: you have to maintain surveillance on people stealing your ideas.

Three things that help, are:

– complexity (e.g. technological complexity)
– speed (e.g. scaling/growth speed for market penetration)
– good lawyers (that watch the market and immediately shut the door on copycats if possible)
