Dear Guido,

You can access the Federated Register to have an overview of the status of the patent in the different countries. A deep link on the country code will take you directly to the particular national register to allow you to retrieve more information.

Hope this answers your question.
Kind regards

I just want to say that there are a few ways to check in which countries a patent is valid:

Consult the patent office: One of the most reliable ways to check the validity of a patent is to consult the patent office that issued the patent. They will have information on the countries in which the patent is valid and the specific terms and conditions of the patent.

Check the European Patent Office (EPO) database: The EPO maintains a database of patents that have been granted by national patent offices in European countries. This database can be searched by patent number, applicant name, or keywords, and it will show in which countries the patent has been granted.

Use online patent databases: There are also several online patent databases that you can use to search for patents and check their validity. Some of the most popular ones include Google Patents, Espacenet, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) database.

Check directly with the patent holder: Another way to check the validity of a patent is to contact the patent holder directly and ask them.

It's important to note that patent laws vary between countries and regions, so it's always best to consult the patent office or a legal expert to confirm the validity of a patent in a specific country.
