Question: If I have a patent in Australia, do I have a patent in another country?
No, a registered patent is a right granted by jurisdiction.
If you have a patent granted in Australia, you will have an exclusive right to exploit such a patent within Australia. Patent rights in other countries must be obtained by registering the invention within their jurisdiction.
