Korea: Searching for trial information in KIPRIS made easier

In the KIPRIS search system, the overview on trial information was updated with an English translation of all field labels (such as e.g. "trial type", "decision status" etc.). Even though the content of each field is still available only in Korean, the English field label helps foreign users to identify which field might include some important information which can be retrieved by copying the Korean text into a free online machine translation tool.

In KIPRIS, users can retrieve information on trial proceedings by clicking on the "judgement" tab on the "Detailed View" page. The "Judgement" tab will only be added if any trial for the related patent or utility model took place.
