Vicki Strachan of Wynne Jones IP will be hosting the next Informals workshop session, entitled “Design filing strategies and on-line patent searching”:
“This workshop session brimming with practical advice for trainees of all levels will commence with a talk exploring design filing strategies and things to look out for, with a focus on EU designs, the Hague International filing system, and the particulars of filing in the US, China, Korea and Japan. You will then be whisked away on a tour of the best practice for online patent searching. This part of the workshop will look at how to maximise the potential from espacenet, patentscope, and the national patent registers, in order to help inventors during the design process determine the potential scope of protection available for an invention and pre-empt an Examiners’ objections.”
