The International Society for Patent Information Professionals
Search Community Job Board
When talking about prior art search, the huge amount of patent and utility model applications being filed in China, most without other family members, it seems sometimes like we have to face a terrific monster. When – in case of FTO searches – we even have to understand and interpret – the corresponding legal event data – the monster even changes into the legendary dragon. However, we invite you to tame this dragon together: We will define what is considered a legal event in China, what kind of information is available and where, discuss when an event is legally effective and how INPADOC legal event classification assists you in interpreting your findings. Finally, we will look at different case studies and show how analysing legal event information can support your business decisions.
You are welcome to send your own cases beforehand and/or propose them during the workshop.
