Foreign Filing Strategies - Considerations in Protecting Your Patents Globally


Protecting your inventions around the world represents a large financial investment - but, a decision not to seek protection in a particular country may have serious consequences. The costs of protecting your IP in foreign countries must be weighed against the value derived from protection in each country. Topics discussed during this presentation will include:

  • Foreign filing decision-making process
  • Questions to ask yourself (and your counsel) when selecting where to file
  • Knowing when to file and when not to file
  • Examples of default foreign filing plans as starting points
