Israel patent practice is distinct from US and European practice in a number of respects. Moshe Tritel describes a number of such areas with important practical ramifications for applicants seeking to maximise their patent protection in Israel.
Earlier-filed patent applications

The Israel Patent Office relates to earlier-filed applications slightly differently from either the European or US patent offices.
