Protective rights are principally valid only within the territory of the country that granted them. A Swiss patent protects an invention only in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Have you also obtained protection abroad? Before you begin to export, especially if you haven’t obtained protection abroad, be certain that you will not be infringing on the rights of anyone in your target market.
