T1: The Common Citation Document and Beyond; Families, Search Reports, and Citations

The Common Citation Document (CCD) is a service that allows you to access the citations allocated by different IP offices to individual patent family members. You use it to compare patentability searches for the same invention carried out by different offices, and to understand why a given examiner cited a particular piece of prior art. The CCD also helps you to anticipate the outcome of a search from a later filed office compared with one from an earlier filed office. This session will give you an opportunity you to explore its features and possibilities.

The CCD gathers together more than 130 million citations from approximately 30 IP offices worldwide and the coverage continues to increase. But what if you want citation data from an IP office that’s not one of the 30? Especially if that office is in Asia? We'll show you how to access citation data directly from the Asian IP offices which currently do not deliver to the CCD.

This direct access combined with data from the CCD help you build a complete citation picture for patent families which extend across the globe.

T2: Asian legal status in depth: Obtaining trial information from China, Japan and Korea

What is China’s re-examination board? How can a third party challenge a granted patent in Korea? Where can I check if an appeal against a rejection was successful in Japan?
Information on patent-related trials are an important element of every legal status search, but many users struggle to find data on appeals, invalidations, re-examinations and other proceedings in free available online databases.

In this training, participants will

  • get an overview of the different procedures possible during the lifetime of a patent in China, Japan and Korea;
  • explore various online search tools available in order to retrieve information on these trials
  • see how to download documents related to the procedures such as amendments, final judgements etc.
  • learn how to obtain the most important data in original language sources - without original language skills!

T3: Legal status products from the EPO

This course looks at various sources of legal status information available using the EPO's products and services. You'll receive guidance on how to use of the various products and learn to recognise some typical pitfalls. Examples will illustrate the use of the different EPO patent information sources. These include the European Patent Register, the EPO website, the European Publication Server and the European Patent Bulletin. Following this, you'll be asked to complete set tasks yourself with the help of the expert. By the end, you will be able to select and access the most appropriate resource according to the particular situation.

T4: Understanding patent families at the EPO

This course illustrates the key features of the extended and the simple patent families available on the Espacenet and OPS systems. Starting with an overview of the data flows and structure of the EPO databases, it will introduce the concept of patent family and its application at the EPO. To illustrate the usefulness of patent families, we'll discuss some strengths and stumbling blocks. Additionally, you'll learn who delivers what kind and what amount of data to the database.

Level: Advanced

T5: Searching for information in ASEAN countries & India

How can I search for prior art filed in India? Is it possible to obtain a legal status for a Malaysian application? What does a Thai document look like?

This workshop will shine the spotlight on some of the most dynamic regions in Asia: India and the ASEAN states. Patent information is playing an increasingly important role in these regions, but which sources are available for users to search for prior art, legal status and other data from these countries?

We will explore various aspects of patent information from India and ASEAN member states, with a focus on free online search tools offered by the national offfices. Participants will

  • receive a brief overview on key features of the patent systems and recent developments
  • learn about important aspects of patent documentation (document types, number formats, kind codes)
  • explore free online search tools provided by national patent offices

T6: Making sense of the EPO’s alphabet soup

The EPO offers a number of patent information products and features, which tend to be known by their Initials: EPR CCD CPC GD FWA MT etcetera. This workshop will show you how to use these products interactively so that you view the patent landscape that  you’re interested in, from multiple perspectives.

Level: Beginners
Price: 50 Euro
Room: to be assigned

T7: Introduction to the PATSTAT product family and PATSTAT Online

This hands-on training course explores the possibilities offered by the PATSTAT product line and its online interface. The PATSTAT product line is specially designed for advanced patent statistics, enabling you to find out more about technological trends and your competitive environment, supporting your business decisions. The training course will include an introduction to SQL queries and data aggregation. We'll demonstrate and let you experiment with patent indicators available at the online interface and will explain the various visualisation options.

T8: Combine the power of GPI and EPAB

GPI is a searchable worldwide bibliographic and legal status patent information tool derived from the EPO’s worldwide patent information databases. EPAB product covers the full-text of EP A and B documents, but is richer than GPI in some areas such as full-text searching. The training will show how the two products can be used in combination under their common user interface.

Level: Intermediate
Price: 50 Euro
Room: to be assigned

T9: Patent analytics/intelligence

Patent analytics/intelligence can make an important contribution to decision making in companies, patent law offices or technology transfer offices. Potential tasks range from identifying the technology focus of companies or industries to examining technology trends to identifying licence or co-operation partners. This workshop will give a review of the process steps related to patent analytics/intelligence, including the statistical analysis of bibliographical patent data, procedural and legal status data. Using the example of selected emerging and established technology sectors, it will be shown how patent analytics/intelligence can support users of patent data in obtaining relevant information for their daily routine.
