Strategic Global Protection of Your Inventions

Original air date: 8.11.21

It is now often imperative to have a global perspective in any endeavor. Certain types of technological products, such as software, are easily distributed and utilized and the associated intellectual property (IP) rights need to be protected across different jurisdictions.

In general, different countries or regions manage invention protection through national or international IP law. Such IP law continues to evolve in all directions, and national IP law can vary significantly from one jurisdiction to another. To pursue global invention protection, it is possible and important to adopt an intelligent approach of building a worldwide portfolio of patents or other forms of protection based on a superior understanding of the national and international laws. Often times, a client may have candidate jurisdictions in mind for Invention protection based on the locations of customers or competitors. An IP practitioner then needs to strategize the filing and prosecution of applications for protection among these jurisdictions first. Knowledge of national and international IP laws, however, may sometimes also inform a practitioner on the selection of jurisdictions in which to pursue invention protection. This program reviews key factors to consider when pursuing invention protection on a global scale and shows how evaluating each key factor helps improve the drafting and prosecution of an application for patents or other forms of protection in individual jurisdictions and help expand the worldwide portfolio swiftly and effectively.
