I am the inventor of a European patent. Am I allowed to share the full-text (PDF) of such patent and to upload it online, for example on ResearchGate.net? Or does the patent have some sort of copyright? Is the answer valid also for US patents, for a PCT patents, and for all the different patent versions (A1, B1, ...)?
