National, European or International Registration
Patent registration grants territorial protection. This means that it will only have legal protection in those countries where it has been effectively registered.
When it comes to protecting your patent, you can proceed in 3 different ways:
- National route: By filing a patent application in the country in which protection is desired.
- European route:Through a European patent application in which protection can be obtained in up to 38 countries (28 countries of the European Union and 10 additional ones) at the same time.
- International Route: Through the PCT system, by which the patent can be applied for in up to 153 countries, by means of a single application.
If your invention seeks to have cross-border presence, it is important to determine the necessary strategy to register, protect and maintain the adequate protection of this intangible asset.
