Best Practices in Global Patent Prosecution
International patents can be of tremendous value in protecting your innovations across the globe. However, the cost of international prosecution can be high, and because of the differences in patent laws and enforcement options across different jurisdictions, it is important to approach international prosecution in a strategic manner.
