International Patent Law Research
This lesson is an overview of how to research international patent law. It will cover both how to find sources of patent laws for countries besides the United States, and how to find sources of multi-national laws, such as treaties and other agreements, that govern the enforcement and regulation of patents between countries.
On completion of the lesson, the student will be able to:
- Identify the major international treaties about patent law and the bodies that promulgated them.
- Locate sources of patent law from non-U.S. countries.
- Identify and use secondary resources for international patent law research when appropriate.
