IPR – Intellectual Property Rights
An IPR is a territorial right. There is nothing called a global IP protection. To protect an IP globally, it has to go through different countries’ IP procedures. ANS has a wide outreach globally with the expert IP attorneys assisting us in the international filings of IP. Although an inventor can choose to file patent in different countries, especially countries where potential market size of his technology is high throgh two routes:
1) PCT Route – An inventor can file a PCT patent application having its patent office in Geneva, Switzerland. The Patent Cooperation Treaty is an international patent law treaty, concluded in 1970. It provides a unified procedure for filing patent applications to protect inventions in each of its contracting states. A patent application filed under the PCT is called an international application, or PCT application. This route gives a time period of 30/31 months from the priority data to file a patent in selective countries globally.
2) Direct Filing – This route gives only 12 months from the priority date to file the patent in selective countries globally.
Our reach is extended up to the countries shown in different colors:
