    The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) is the heart of the international patent system and should be considered in every applicant's patent filing strategy. When it is used appropriately, the PCT is a cost-effective option for international patent protecting and provides numerous benefits for applicants, patent offices, and third parties. With opaque rules and obscure terminology, using the PCT can cause confusion and is a difficult system to master. The Practitioner's Guide to the PCT demystifies the system to help practitioners employ the PCT to their client's advantage. Based on the authors' many years of experience with the system and the important lessons they have learned from prior mistakes. Starting 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. Topics covered include:
    • PCT requirements and procedures
    • International search and preliminary examination
    • Post-filing procedures: publication, withdrawals, and recording changes
    • Procedural safeguards
    • Strategies and guidelines for entering the national phase
    • Entry into the national phase in the U.S., Europe, China, and elsewhere
    • Strategies and recommendations for a PCT application
    In addition, The Practitioner's Guide to the PCT includes invaluable supplemental materials, including WIPO resources, glossaries of terms and abbreviations, and an informed discussion on the future of the PCT.
