Patent Cooperation Treaty The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) is an international patent law treaty, concluded in 1970. It provides a unified procedure for filing patent applications to protect inventions in each of its contracting states. A patent application filed under the PCT is called an international application, or PCT application. A single filing of an international application is made with a Receiving Office (RO) in one language. Software patent debate The software patent debate is the argument about the extent to which, as a matter of public policy, it should be possible to patent software and computer-implemented inventions. Policy debate on software patents has been active for years.[1] The opponents to software patents have gained more visibility with less resources through the years than their pro-patent opponents.[2] Arguments and critiques have been focused mostly on the economic consequences of software patents. One aspect of the debate has focused on the proposed European Union directive on the patentability of computer-implemented inventions, also known as the "CII Directive" or the "Software Patent Directive," which was ultimately rejected by the EU Parliament in July 2005. Arguments for patentability[edit] There are several arguments commonly given in defense of software patents or in defense of the patentability of computer-implemented inventions. Public disclosure[edit]

Convention Establishing the World Intellectual Property Organization (Signed at Stockholm on July 14, 1967 andas amended on September 28, 1979) The Contracting Parties, Desiring to contribute to better understanding and co-operation among States for their mutual benefit on the basis of respect for their sovereignty and equality, Desiring, in order to encourage creative activity, to promote the protection of intellectual property throughout the world, The European Patent Convention 15th Edition, October 2013 To mark the 40th anniversary of the signing of the European patent system's founding treaty, on 5 October 1973 in Munich, an updated jubilee 15th edition of the European Patent Convention (EPC) was published in October 2013. The EPC remains the foundation stone of European co-operation in the patent field.

Towards a "World Intellectual Wealth Organisation" Towards a Supporting the Geneva Declaration The Geneva Declaration is an impressive step towards the creation of a broad coalition of people, organisations and countries1 demanding that the international community re-think the goals and mechanisms for awarding monopoly control over different kinds of knowledge. It offers many constructive, concrete suggestions for changes in WIPO goals, policies and priorities, and provides ample and insightful arguments for redesign of the copyright and patent bargains to better serve the public interest of all of humankind. We are convinced that new answers sometimes require new questions, not more careful repetition of old questions.
