About the Foreign Excellence Webinar Series

You have a researcher who has developed an exciting invention and you have already decided to file a patent application in the United States. Now you need to decide if you should also file patent applications abroad, and if so, where. The cost of filing patent applications in every country in the world can add up quickly, as there are about 200 countries where some sort of patent rights are available. Therefore, you will need to be selective as to which countries are designated.

In this advanced webinar series, we’ll take a look at some of the key countries outside of the U.S. and provide strategies and best practices for patenting. We’ll take a look at the many factors that need to be considered when deciding where to file foreign patent applications, including:
  • Market considerations, manufacturing and emerging trends
  • Competitive intelligence
  • Patentability and enforcement
  • Potential costs and budgeting

Each of these complimentary webinars will be given by a panel of speakers with extensive foreign filing knowledge for each of the countries that we cover. The panel will include speakers from Black Hills IP, Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner, and foreign associates.
