Which patent filing strategy should you follow?

In general, you can find 2 main different patent filing strategies:

  1. Filing a direct local patent application.
  2. Filing an international PCT application.

Patents have territorial validity and it is necessary to file your patent in each country in which you wish to protect it. There are some territorial organizations, like European Patent Office, African Regional Intellectual Property Organization, Eurasian Patent Organization, that facilitate in some degree this process, but in general the owner has to apply country by country.


In case you need to file your patent application in more countries (internationally), it is highly recommended to file a PCT application first. This allows an inventor to file and protect the patent in any of the contracting states. A patent application filed under the PCT is called **international application**, or a **PCT application** and it does not mean that your patent has been filed internationally, but it extends the time for patent filing in more countries.

Without a PCT application, a patent application must be filed in all territories where you wish to protect it within 12 months from the first filing. Alternatively, if a PCT application is filed within 12 months from the first filing, time for entering a national phase in all the other PCT member state countries will be in 30 months from the original filing date.

The PCT application is a very useful strategy in the inventor or applicant has the intention to go global, the time extension will allow him to test the product into the market while gathering external capital to be invested in the protection process.
