Adrian, Thank you very much for the great work that you did with the patent! Your input was the most important one that led the patent to grant. Your high professionalism, knowledge and expertise are highly regarded. It was my great honor to work with you. I am sure we will continue our relationship going as the patents will have to be renewed, however our major work have been completed. I will always remember my experience working with you as the most accomplishing one!V. Nazarenko

If you have an invention which is suitable for many areas around the world, should you file an international patent application straightaway?
If you are sure the invention is unique, then file an international (PCT) patent application straightaway. However, initially it is likely to be cheaper filing a domestic patent application and obtaining a good quality initial search from the local patent office. If the search is positive, then with greater confidence file your PCT within 12 months and with a priority claim.
Unlike most countries, America provides a 12 months grace period from first disclosure in which a patent application can still be filed. Therefore, even if publicly disclosed, you may still be entitled to valid patent protection for your invention in at least the USA.
