WIPO reports that San Marino will become, on 14 December 2004, the 124th state to join the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), the WIPO-administered system for obtaining large-scale international coverage following a single initial application.

The IPKat notes that just one patent has been granted in San Marino between the years 1999 and 2003, which suggests that the tiny country's PCT membership may not have a huge impact on the industrial world.
