PCT One million and counting - Quotes (CCPIT Patent & Trademark Law Office)

Why does your company use the PCT?

"The millionth PCT application serves as a mark of great success of the Patent Cooperation Treaty and its entry into a new era of amazingly rapid development. The CCPIT (China Council for the Promotion of International Trade) Patent & Trademark Law Office offers its most sincere and cordial congratulations on this remarkable event.

Although the Patent Cooperation Treaty does not have a history as long as that of the Paris Convention, it has been playing an ever increasingly important role in promoting the development of world science and technology, harmonizing the patent systems of different countries, enhancing communication of patent information, simplifying the application procedures, minimizing the application cost and other aspects.

Since China became a PCT member country on January 1, 1994, as one of the largest intellectual property law firms in China, the CCPIT Patent & Trademark Law Office has intimate knowledge of the great influence that the PCT system has had in China. We have seen with great pleasure the immense scope and potential for Chinese patent applicants to better utilize the PCT system in the future."
