How can you find out if a patent is still valid?

Post by EPO / Patent Information » Thu Dec 15, 2016 12:37 pm

For national patent documents the European Patent Office relies on the (bulk) deliveries from the various national patent offices regarding the publication of their patent applications. Each national patent office has its own rules regarding the publication of their patent applications.

We recommend you to contact the relevant national patent office to obtain more precise legal information about the patent.
