Patent law Edit

In a first-to-file patent system, the right to the grant of a patent for a given invention lies with the first person to file a patent application for protection of that invention, regardless of the date of actual invention. The first-to-file system is used in the majority of countries, except the United States, which uses a first-to-invent patent system.
