What international conventions protect patent rights?

The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) was established in 1970 to simplify the formalities and procedures of international patent applications, making it easier to obtain patent protection in multiple countries. The Hague Agreement, concluded in 1925, also aims to facilitate applications for the protection of industrial designs in various countries. The Strasbourg Agreement, signed in 1971, seeks to unify the international classification of patents. The Budapest Treaty on the International Recognition of the Deposit of Microorganisms for the Purposes of Patent Procedure (the Budapest Treaty), established in 1977, addresses the preservation of microbiological samples involved in patent applications.
