agenda
Agenda
  • Usage of IPC in the industry / Benefits
  • Consequences of the IPC reform
  • Impact of changes in IPC for alerts
  • Implication of incorrect assigned IPC codes
  • Examples
usage of ipc in the industry
Usage of IPC in the industry
  • General business and portfolio decisions
    • Buying a business because of technological synergies
    • Buying a business because of needed technologies
    • Identifying the Licensee of IPRs for needed technologies
    • Identifying internal business that does not match the overall portfolio (anymore)
  • General technology decisions
    • Is a technology already covered by competitors or are there still "white spots“
    • Are competitors going for a special technology
  • Single IPR related decisions
    • Identifying IPRs that can be sold or licensed-out
  • R&D related applications
    • Profile based surveillance of competitors or technologies
    • Freedom of operation searches
    • Prior-art searches
benefits of the ipc
Benefits of the IPC
  • Reduced need of complex and error prone keyword searches
    • Example: Main Group B61C 3/00 can replace keywords like: “electric locomotive”, “electric railcar”, “locomotive with electric propulsion …” in a search
  • Hierarchical classification scheme applied by the skilled professionals of the patent offices.
consequences of the ipc reform
Consequences of the IPC reform
  • Reduced comparability of statistical analyses performed before the reform and today as well as those carried out in the future.
  • Slightly easier prior-art searches because of the now dynamic classification scheme.
  • Loss of instruments that were used for years in every day work: e.g. Main / Secondary Classes
impact ipc reform on alert services
Impact IPC reform on alert services
  • Much larger effort is necessary to keep automated profiles up-to-date due to the regular changes in the classification
  • Because of the use of correlation tables by other classification systems those systems are more sensitive for inconsistencies and delays in the new IPC process
    • Example: US Class, Derwent Manual Codes, F-Terms(?)
implication of incorrect assigned or initially missing ipc codes
Implication of incorrect assigned or initially missing IPC codes
  • Any document that has an incorrect assigned or an initially missing IPC code is lost as information source for alert services
  • Depending on your database provider whole sets of documents can be unavailable, if the IPC is incorrect or missing
    • Example: WO 2006 074123 (SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR IMAGE LIFT WITH ENHANCED IMAGE CAPTURE )
    • Complete change of scope between A2 and A3 from
    • B03B (SEPARATING SOLID MATERIALS USING LIQUIDS OR USING PNEUMATIC TABLES OR JIGS)
    • to G06K (RECOGNITION OF DATA; PRESENTATION OF DATA; RECORD CARRIERS; HANDLING RECORD CARRIERS)
slide10

P4 Separating, Mixing

P41 Crushing: centrifuging, separating solids

(B02, B03, B04).

P42 Spraying, atomising (B05).

conclusion and requirement
Conclusion and requirement
  • Solve the problem with missing IPC
  • Early information about Reclassification
  • More cooperation between the offices inthe standardization processes
  • Improvement of the usability of the available online tools
pdg activities and working groups
PDG activities and working groups
  • IMPACT (meetings twice a year, next in Basel April 2008)
  • SACEPO/PDI
  • EPOPIC
  • In all this groups / meetings we are discussing the facts and working on solutions
  • Thank you for your attention
