QUESTION: How to be covered by patent worldwide How can I protect my product by patent worldwide?

ANSWER: Unfortunately, there is no single patent application that can be filed and provide worldwide protection. There is a filing mechanism, called the PCT, which allows you to file a single application and which can then be followed up with country specific applications or regional applications (like Europe).
