Keywords: patent, international, strategy

Many nanotechnology companies have limited intellectual property budgets in the short term, but the potential for global markets for their products and services in the long term. As a result, a coherent and targeted international filing strategy is critical. Here we present an analysis of the relative costs and important considerations related to the pursuit of foreign patent protection and examine trends in foreign filing strategies across the nanotechnology industry.
