Say that you've invented a new, useful and, in patent terms, "nonobvious" object or process that you believe will command strong utility in the American business market.

What do you do?

You likely take steps to patent your intellectual property without delay. You do so by working closely with an experienced patent attorney who can help you at every stage of the lengthy and intricate application process. A proven patent lawyer will have comprehensive knowledge of all requirements, as well as ample experience working with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

What if your invention has global applicability and you want to extend your rights of protection internationally? Is there a process for doing that?

There is, and, as noted on our website at the Eldredge Law Firm in an article on patent protection, it makes eminent sense that global patent protection is available in an era marked by "the globalization of commercial and scientific progress."

It has long been recognized that it is vitally important for inventors to have exclusive rights to make, use and market their intellectual property in all regions of the world where it commands relevance. As such, nearly 150 countries across the globe -- including the United States -- are signatories to the Patent Cooperation Treaty administered through a United Nations agency.

That agency is the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), which oversees the treaty and governs the process for international patent applications.

Fortunately for American inventors, international patent rights can be sought by filing domestically through the USPTO, which is a receiving office for WIPO.

Questions and concerns regarding any aspect of a patent application can be referred to experienced patent counsel.
