Patents – Patents are licenses which protect innovations and must be filed before the invention becomes known to the public. In South-East Asia, the patent types available to register differ by nation. For information on each country's patent system, visit our IP Factsheets. It should also be noted that a European registered patent has no legal effect in South-East Asia.
