The so-called priority system lends the applicant the possibility of postponing the extending of the patent’s scope of protection abroad for 12 months, starting from the filing day of the first application. The postponement provides time for clarifying the patentability and industrial applicability of the invention before expensive applications are filed abroad. In most countries, the 12-month time limit for utilizing priority is absolute.
