Recent news related to PCT Treaty
We previously informed that on June 7th, 2012, Panama became the 146th PCT Contracting State and that the PCT will enter into force for that State on September 7th, 2012.
It has been known now that the Industrial Property Law, the Copyright and related Rights Law and the Plant Protection Law will not be approved before October 1, 2012. For this reason it would be advisable to go on filing patent applications in Panama within the 1 year priority term according to Paris Convention at least until October 2, 2012.
