International Utility and Plant Patenting Starts with a PCT Application
Carson Patents can help with patenting your invention all around the world. One of the choices available for filing a complete and proper utility or plant patent application is to file a Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) application with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The PCT application can be filed directly into WIPO, or indirectly through the USPTO. We offer both options, but we recommend that American inventors file PCT applications through the USPTO. Additionally, we also recommend selecting the United States as the International Search Authority unless the specific circumstances necessitate otherwise.
A complete and proper PCT patent application that is properly submitted to WIPO results in the invention being patent pending worldwide. Importantly, the PCT is a two stage patent application process that also requires a patent application in each country where you wish to seek patent protection. There is no international patent. The PCT is only an international patent pending application. Read more about the PCT.
International Design Patenting Includes a Hague Application
Carson Patents can help with patenting your invention all around the world. One of the choices available for filing a complete and proper design patent application is to file a Hague application with WIPO. The Hague application can be filed directly into WIPO. Unlike the PCT, Hague applications permit you to register for multiple patents in multiple countries in a single application. Read more about The Hague.
International Trademarking Starts with a PCT Application
Carson Patents can help with trademarking your logo, name, or slogan all around the world. After we file and register your trade or service mark in the United States there is the Madrid Protocol implemented through WIPO. Through the Madrid Protocol there is a single application for seeking trademark protection in countries around the world. Read more about the Madrid Protocol at the USPTO.
