The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) is the heart of the international patent system and should be considered in every applicant's patent filing strategy. This book demystifies the PCT, helping practitioners employ the system to their client's advantage. Beginning with a clear explanation of the PCT's framework, the book's in-depth chapters equip applicants with the tools necessary to effectively use this global, treaty-based system. It covers all aspects of the PCT, from its requirements and procedures to practice-focused strategies and recommendations for a PCT application.
