Comments from Speaker:
Inventive step has always been an important issue in patent practice.
Which of the following do you believe would be most effective in arguing inventive step of claimed inventions?
(1) Pointing out an incorrect interpretation by the examiner
(2) Refuting a matter of design
(3) Arguing a lack of motivation
(4) Finding an obstructive factor
(5) Asserting a remarkable effect
In this seminar, I will explain the framework of inventive step in Japan, and the tendency of the JPO’s judgment of inventive step for respective technical fields based on my analyses of over 700 examination cases from the JPO.
Speaker: Kenji TANAKA, Patent Attorney
