Foreign Patent Filing
Patent Co-operation Treaty (PCT) Filing
Under the PCT, the inventors of member states can file an international patent application with the World Intellectual Property Office in Geneva, Switzerland. The international patent application gives the patent applicant the choice of filing the patent in the foreign country within approximately 30 months of the first filed patent application. The approximately 30 month period gives the patent applicant the time to evaluate the commercial viability of their invention in any foreign country and to defer costs associated with the filing of foreign applications by up to about 30 months . For more information on the PCT see here.

Trademark International Filing
Madrid Protocol
The Madrid Protocol allows a trademark applicant to file a single international registration for a trademark or service mark. With an international trademark registration, a trademark applicant can register a trademark or service mark in any of the contracting parties that the trademark applicant designates for protection. A single international trademark registration simplifies the process of trademark prosecution, as allowance of the trademark allows registration of the mark in each of the countries designated in the international application. The trademark applicant can subsequently designate more countries for trademark registration through the international trademark registration.
