PCT Newsletter Highlights for November 2004

The November 2004 issue of the PCT Newsletter is now available here.

This issue contains a table showing the PCT Contracting States for which a regional patent can be obtained, broken down as follows:

  • States for which only a regional patent can be obtained;
  • States for which a regional patent can be obtained in addition to, or instead of, a national patent;
  • States which are not included in the EP designation, but to which a European patent can be extended.

This table, which will hopefully be a convenient resource for applicants to find out which States are designated for a regional patent, will be published on the PCT website under "PCT legal texts" and updated when necessary.
