Paris Convention for the protection of industrial property

The Paris Convention, adopted in 1883, applies to industrial property in the widest sense, including patents, trademarks, industrial designs, utility models, service marks, trade names, geographical indications and the repression of unfair competition.

Budapest Treaty on the international recognition of the deposit of microorganisms for the purposes of patent procedure

Budapest Treaty on the international recognition of the deposit
of microorganisms for the purposes of patent procedure

Adopted in 1977, the Budapest Treaty concerns a specific topic in the international patent process: microorganisms. All states party to the Treaty are obliged to recognize microorganisms deposited as a part of the patent procedure, irrespective of where the depository authority is located. In practice this means that the requirement to submit microorganisms to each and every national authority in which patent protection is sought no longer exists.
