Patent tip: Make use of the priority year!

Within a year after the date of filing a first patent application, for the same invention, another patent application can be filed, claiming the first date of filing. The second application can be filed in the same but also in a different country.

This can provide much needed flexibility in choice of the geographical coverage of the innovation.

Therefore, make use of this special year! Ask your patent attorney, he or she can explain in more detail the details about claiming priority.
