GB is an abbreviation in this wiki referring to Great Britain.


See also: Great Britain's Patent Office.

The British patent offices had a registration system not an examination system in the early aero period. Britain's "Statute of Monopolies enacted in 1623 rendered illegal all monopolies except those for a defined term of years; this forms the basis of modern patent law."[1]

A comparative summary is in Bottomley, 2014.[2]
