With the increasing speed of globalization, it is essential to protect your company’s IP assets in a number of regions. The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) enables you to obtain patents in multiple jurisdictions through a streamlined process.
The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) enables any inventor and/or applicant seeking patent protection to gain time and increase the chance of obtaining patents in multiple jurisdictions simultaneously through a streamlined filing procedure. The PCT system enables to extend a right of priority, if any, for up to 30 or 31 months (or more) and enter the national/regional phases of a PCT application in well over 150 jurisdictions.
