Protection of inventions in Lithuania is granted on the basis of:
- National patent;
- EP (European Patent).
All these systems guarantee equal rights for patents valid in Lithuania.
The Lithuanian State Patent Bureau (LSPB) may be a receiving office for a patent application filed under each of these systems.
The law establishes a 20-year period of patent validity.
To maintain validity of national, European (EP) and International (PCT) patents there should be paid annuities to the national Bureau.
