Regarding "World Patent application". I understand that the very basic basic process is:
- Apply for a world patent application it stands in for an application in all the various countries that the inventor wants protection in.
- Decide what countries the inventor wants protection in and apply in those countries.
- Patents in various countries are either granted or not.
How does one tell if the individual patents applied for in each country has been granted or is pending/in some other state?
Specific countries I am interested in are: US, EP, CA, ES, AT, PT, BRP, SI, DK, DE
