The application of intellectual property rights does, naturally, incur costs.
The cost of such an application strongly depends, on the one hand, on the mere volume of the content of the application, i.e. the number of patent or utility model claims, the number of pages in a patent application, the number of goods and services in a trademark application or the number of designs which you would like to combine in the same design application. On the other hand, the cost is also dependent on the regional scope of protection desired. Thus, the cost of an international patent application (PCT patent) is considerably different from the one of a German patent application. A German trademark application is cheaper than a Community trademark application. If you would like to know more about the costs of a specific application, please do not hesitate to contact us.
