    Hi Chaitanya Priya..! It's our pleasure to answer your queries. Well, they are answered below respectively...

    1.The day you file the patent application, you become eligible for filing a PCT application. You can file the application as a PCT application else you will need to file this PCT application within 12 months of filing the Indian application.

    2. Any person or company to whom you sell the complete rights of your Patent is the assignee of that Patent. In case you are not selling it to anyone you remain the assignee of the patent. However, in case, you are working for a company and in the course of your work you have invented something, the company you work for will be the owner of the invention [it depends on the agreements you may have signed with them].

    3. A person to whom you assign the complete rights of you patent is the assignee. A good analogy can be something like selling off your property. Whereas, licensing is like providing temporary [or limited] rights to someone, the analogy could be putting your property up for rent for a certain period of time under certain stipulations and terms.

    The main difference is ownership. The owner of a patent possesses the right to exclude or include others from using the invention.

    Let’s take an example, initially an inventor owns a right over the invention. During assignment the inventor can give his rights to someone else, for example a company he works for. The assignee then becomes the owner of the patent and has the right to exclude or include other from using it. Thereafter, the assignee may choose to have a license agreement that permits another company to use the invention under certain conditions. However, the assignee here does not necessarily give up his right, they still remain the assignee and are merely giving permission or a license to another company [the licensee] to use their invention under certain conditions.

These never come to public domain Complete Specification Applications • Much enhanced version of the Provisional application to be filed within 12 months from the filing of provisional application (can also be filed directly without a filing provisional) • Considered for examination and grant. • Provide complete implementation details, utility details, best mode of operation, etc for the invention The complete specification application should ensure that anyone operating in the domain of application subject (e.g. mechanical, etc) will be able to perform the invention using details provided in the application. Priority Date • Filing date of provisional and/or Complete specification Application (whichever is earlier) • However, If application filed in any other country before filing in India - the filing date in that country Priority date ensures that any invention related documents published after this date are not considered as novelty breaking for the patent application.
