The ASEAN region has developed into one of the fastest-growing markets in the world and is attracting increasing attention from patent applicants and searchers.
What are the most important features of the different patent systems? What do I have to know about kind codes, document types and number formats? What sources are available for prior art searches, patent monitoring and legal status retrieval?
In a series of three online seminars, the EPO's Worldwide IP team will provide you an introduction to various aspects of patent information from six countries in the ASEAN region: Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. In addition, we will also take a first glimpse at the newly introduced IP institutions of Myanmar.
