International PCT Patents
File your international PCT patent using this system to obtain provisional patent protection over more than 150 countries worldwide, allowing you to delay the deadline up to 30 or 31 months from priority for most countries for entering national and/or regional phases in each designated Office, when those significant effective protection costs are incurred (a valuable period for you to start to market your invention or to negotiate the exploitation and license agreements with others), while its patentability is being searched and examined.
