- Presentation at PDG IMPACT Meeting
JIPA introduced the patent classification for IoT announced by JPO, and its status of assignment, based on the results obtained by the JIPA Information Search Committee. The delegation recommended the establishment of a patent classification for IoT in CPC, and its retroactive application to cases in the past. Furthermore, the delegation emphasized the need of the event code for legal status information on CN patents and requested the development of legal status information (event code) for INPADOC.
- Visit to Hoffmann Eitle
The delegation members had a meeting with Mr. Leo Polz and Mr. Gustavo Fuster Olaguibel on patent issues in Spain.
- Visit to WIPO
The delegation exchanged views with Ms. Ning Xu and Ms. Irene Kitsara on a tool for analysis and visualization provided by WIPO for free. The delegation members also talked with Mr. Takagi and Mr. Fushimi about the patent classification for IoT announced by JPO and its status of assignment, and exchanged opinions on the establishment of a patent classification for IoT in IPC, which would be applied retroactively to past cases. They agreed on our proposal of introducing a new patent classification for IoT.
- Visit to Siemens
The delegation had a meeting with Mr. Gerold Frers, Mr. Bernd Wolter, Mr. Hubert Karly, and Mr. Arndt Mecke, and introduced the patent classification for IoT announced by JPO and its status of assignment. We exchanged opinions on the establishment of a patent classification for IoT in IPC/CPC, which would be applied retroactively to past cases. The Siemens members commented that based on the feasibility of assignment of a new IoT patent classification, its concordance with the existing CPC classification should be considered.
Through these activities, we shared information with PDG, delivered JIPA's opinions, introduced JIPA's activities, and continuously strengthened the network with European IP organizations. We will continue to exchange information with them regularly to maintain the cooperation.
