International Patent Law has been evolved due to the need to protect one’s innovations, ideas and to further prevent it from unauthorized use by others. For international patent protection, individual patent applications need to be filed in each country / region for national / regional protection
The Law of Patents has emerged as a crucial branch of law which represents a fascinating interface between the science and law. Thus, most of the countries in North & South America, Asia, Asia Pacific, Africa, Australia and Europe have regulated their framework of patent protection.
The regulations pertaining to patent protection in every country varies and each country has varied term of patent protection, criteria of patentability and non-patentability.
The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) and TRIPS (Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) Agreement are two International conventions which majorly govern the law and procedure relating to patent protection in member countries.
