Japan: Updated information on third party observations available online

The Japan Patent Office (JPO) started to publish data on the electronic filing of third party observations on its website in 2009. Since then, third parties can submit observations electronically and access detailed information on procedural aspects as well as updated statistics. The summary regarding the practice of third party observations in Japan on the English website was updated again in late June 2014.
