Paris Convention filings

Not all the countries belong to the PCT treaty. And not every invention deserves a PCT application. There is still a group of 28 countries which are not part of the PCT and you need to file your patent application one-year after your initial filing. When dealing with urgent translations, text and drawings preparation for filing Convention patent application in non-PCT countries, Inventia offers you an expedited solution that will minimize any extra cost.

After you have filed the first patent application for your invention, you have one full non-extendable year to file it
in Paris Convention countries who are not yet part of the PCT.

If you file a Provisional application, then the problem arises, when you are still working on the final text of the Non-Provisional at the same time you need to prepare your foreign filings before the 1-year deadline.

And you still have to translate and file the application in a myriad of countries!

hidden costs.
