Businesses needs easy, cost-effective ways to protect their
inventions in multiple countries. The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO),
headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, offers an advantageous international
filing and prosecuting system for temporarily protecting patents across borders
until they are filed in each target territory in due time.
By filing one international patent application under the Patent Cooperation
Treaty (PCT), applicants can simultaneously seek protection for an invention in
148+ countries throughout the world. PCT system does not grant a patent
application but provides for applicants with extra time to delay national/regional
filings and with international search and preliminary examination reports which
are very useful to understand the patentability risks of an invention prior to
major nationalization cost.
If you intend to file patent applications outside Turkey, we can determine
whether or not it is prudent for you to file directly in each foreign country or
through the advantageous PCT filing system or by taking advantage of other
routes, based on an assessment of your needs, i.e. your action plan, budget,
number and name of target jurisdictions, protection and enforcement capabilities.
