Manage your Intellectual Property in South-East Asia

Webinar: How can EU SMEs in China and South-East Asia and Latin-America take advantage of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT)?

While patents registered in Europe, being territorial rights, have no legal effect in China and any of the countries in South-east Asia and Latin America. Through the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) it is possible to seek patent protection for an invention simultaneously in several countries by filing a single “international” patent application instead of filing several separate national applications.

Join our webinar on PCT to learn more about the advantages and possible disadvantages of PCT.

Our IPR experts on China, South-east Asia and Latin America will equip you with tips and recommendations on how to utilise the PCT to manage your patent portfolio in developing markets.
