The Patent Cooperation Treaty provides a means to preserve the right to register a patent in multiple nations with a single application.
A PCT patent application can share the benefit of an earlier filed applications’ filing date provided that the PCT is filed within a year of the prior U.S. or foreign application and shares substantially the same disclosure.
In most countries, an applicant has either 30 or 31 months from the earliest priority date to file a “national” phase patent application based upon the PCT application.
