Public Inventor Meeting 

Friday, May 10th, 2019


Eureka Hub Coworking Space

1621 Alton Pkwy.

 Irvine, CA 92606

Friday May 10th                                   

 SUBJECT:  The second part of a two part series on the topic of international intellectual property protection and, in particular, patents-- what’s different about them versus US patents, and what are the steps inventors need to follow to file for international intellectual property rights. The first part of the series (April 12), covered a systematic approach, the second part focuses on PCT and European Patents.

'What I try to accomplish in the first part (April 12), is to bring some systematics into the madness on hundreds of different national laws, multilateral agreements and types of IP rights, and in the second part (May 10), I go into more detail on PCT and EPC – two of the most frequent procedures (PCT – international; EPC – regional) inventors will likely have to deal with when their IP goes international'.
