3/14 – Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) and Hague Strategies for Filing Abroad led by Layla Lauchman

This module will explore building the international patent portfolio, using the “one-stop shopping” Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) for utility patents, including an overview of the differences between the US (utility) patent system and patents internationally, considerations in developing an international patent filing strategy, filing patents in non-PCT countries, and an overview of initiatives to harmonize patent systems. This module also will include information on the Hague System, to which the United States is expected to accede sometime in 2015 and which provides “one-stop shopping” for design patents, and as well as filing for design protection in non-Hague countries. In addition, we shall briefly touch on other types of intellectual property for protecting designs.
