Is your patent new and a huge invention you can market? If your patent is unique enough to be called State of the Art, this needs to be used just to piece together the status of your invention being able to get a patent in the first place. The Patent Cooperation Treaty is an international patent law treaty, finished in 1970. This treaty is designed to help countries file patents that are good internationally.
Copyrighting a creative work in Israel falls under Israel’s intellectual property laws that have been under recent legislative changes due to international criticism on the way Israel manages its intellectual property. The Patent Cooperation Treaty requires that the patent filer goes to a Receiving Office (RO), filing the patent in one language, which then can open doors to release a product to the market. The patent is subject to the copyright laws drafted in 1988. These laws have reached the Knesset to be processed because new patent laws are being considered.
