Taiwan is one of the few countries that is not part of the PCT (patent cooperation treaty). That means the modern practice of various international patent offices sharing documents electronically is not available. An original document needs to be ordered from the USPTO and mailed to our associate in Taiwan. The process is cumbersome.
