The Path to a Patent, Part VI: Learn how to protect your IP abroad

Did you know that patents offer territorial rights, meaning that there is no such thing as an international or global patent? Learn how to help protect your intellectual property (IP) in foreign jurisdictions. USPTO's International Patent Legal Administration will host a two-hour seminar on considerations and options for filing foreign patent applications. This virtual event is free and open to the public, so register early.

You may receive two hours of California Mandatory continuing Legal Education (MCLE) for attending this seminar. Please check with your USPTO regional office for more information on Continuing Legal Education (CLE) accreditation. The discussion will include an overview of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) and the use of the Paris Convention for non-PCT countries.

For more information, please email, call 408-918-9900, or visit the USPTO's Silicon Valley Regional Office online.
