In 2016, Dolby International AB filed a patent application for "Layered coding for compressed sound or sound field representations" which was subsequently granted a European patent.

Is there also a patent for this invention in the Republic of Moldova and, if so, what is its status?


The Republic of Moldova has signed a validation agreement with the European Patent Organisation and has been a validation state since the agreement entered into force on 1 November 2015.

It has also recently joined the Federated Register, allowing access to up-to-date status information for granted EP patents in Moldova.
