Chile is the only country of the region having the Additional Protection remedy, which is basically a right to request from the Industrial Property Court an extended protection time of a granted patent, as a result of the unjustified administrative delay in granting the patent processed by the National Institute of Intellectual Property (Instituto Nacional de Propiedad Industrial, Inapi).
Which are requirements, what is the procedure, how long does it take, when can it be requested, how much is it worth? And other questions.
