Monitoring a competitor's application does not end with the granting of a patent. Legal events even after a patent is granted are just as important and can still have a huge impact on your business decisions: Is the patent still in force? Has it been challenged by a third party? Have there been any changes to the scope of the claims?

Users continue to face a number of challenges when searching post-grant data for patents from Japan, China and Korea. Not all the data is easily accessible, and making sense of the events requires a solid grasp of the related patent systems.

This series of online seminars provides an overview of some of the most important post-grant events and how you can retrieve this data using publicly available search tools from the EPO and national offices.
