Should I request examination of my European patent application when I file it?
For a direct filed (not PCT) European patent application, delaying examination to around 24 months from priority can save costs.
When can I talk about my invention?
The general rule is 'file your patent first, then disclose'. Some countries, eg. USA, do allow disclosure first and then filing within 12 months. But most countries do not, and thus a non-confidential prior disclosure will 'knock out' your patent.
