  3. 3. IP5 – the world’s five biggest intellectual property offices• IP5 = EPO + JPO + KIPO + SIPO + USPTO (meeting at 2008/10/27-28) – Support for 90% patent application filed worldwide + 93% work under PCT – Reason: • The world sees economic barriers between nations fade away – Vision: • The elimination of unnecessary duplication of work – recognising the growing number of filings & pending applications in all five offices – recognising the urgency of taking action • The enhancement of patent examination & Guarantee of the stability of patent right: – recognising the impact on the operation of the patent system 3 Grace@iii.org.tw & cise.ntut

  6. 6. PPH (Paris Route)• USPTO is currently in negotiations with other Patent Offices to become PPH partners – OSF can utilize search & examination results from the OFF to accelerate examination • Improve quality of examination, and avoid duplication of work OFF Patentable/Allowable application Priority claim OSF Request for PPH application Ref: finland’s NBPR http://www.prh.fi/en/patentit/pph/request_for_pph.html + USPTO worksharing program 6 Grace@iii.org.tw & cise.ntut

  9. 9. current PPH scheme (2011/7/15~) • OFF has to provide its examination results before the other offices accept PPH requests – the OFF does not always conduct the examinations before the OSFs do theirs – Therefore, 8 patent offices agreed to lunch a revised PPH (called PPH MOTTAINAI) • an applicant can make PPH requests at OLE by using the examination results of the OEE, • provided that the OEE and OLE have a PPH MOTTAINAI agreement OLE (the Office of Later Examination) OEE (the Office of Earlier Examination) 9Ref: PPH MOTTAINAI http://www.jpo.go.jp/ppph-portal/mottainai.htm Grace@iii.org.tw & cise.ntut
