Unifying international patent systems

From en.swpat.org
Jump to: navigation, search

The Unifying of international patent systems, partially or fully, has been proposed in various domains.

When this was considered in the UK, the Gowers Review of Intellectual Property concluded that international patent offices could benefit from working together on assessing quality and newness, but not on patentable subject matter.

Microsoft has pleaded for a global patent system.[1]

The government of the USA frequently pressures other countries to adopt their extremely broad scope of patenting. This is often described as "harmonisation".
