The patents have a territorial protection. This means that there is not a patent that protects an invention simultaneously in all the countries of the world, on the contrary the process must be carried out in each country.
Before presenting a patent application or begging the merchandising of a new product, it’s very important to perform a search of technological information in order to determine if the resulting invention exists or not in a particular territory. In the case of the pharmaceutical patents, it would be relevant to perform a study of molecules and their product variations, with the aim of defining the viability of use and the merchandising in each country.
Our law firm is expert carrying out these technologicals searches to determine if an invention or development is not protected in the country, and thus defining if a certain technological information can be freely used and be a source of new business.
