Global Patent Protection Strategies and Foreign Filing Licenses

This webinar has ended.


A patent, and the rights conferred by it, is valid only in the country where it is granted. Companies wishing to expand internationally must thus pursue patent protection separately in each country in which they intend to operate. But international patent filing raises a number of important questions: Where should you file? What is the scope of patent protection in each country? What does patent prosecution involve at each patent office?

In this webinar, Fish Principal Gwilym Attwell has an in-depth discussion of these issues and more, including:

  • The basics of foreign patent filing
  • Where to file (and where not to file)
  • Requirements for filing licenses from other countries prior to filing in the United States
  • Aligning a foreign filing strategy to your company's goals, profile, and resources
