Patent Applications - Successful Cases
In 2009, Company A filed a patent application with patent specifications and specified drawings composed on its own. During the physical review, the Intellectual Property Office of MOEA said the documents were not in compliance with the Patent Law. So we were commissioned by Company A to compose relevant documents and propose our opinions. But, as the Patent Law specified, once the application reaches the phase of the physical review, the content shall not be modified or amended with amplified interpretations. In 2013, we failed to make any modification to the patent specifications and specified drawings and thus the Intellectual Property Office of MOEA rejected our application. Then Company A failed to win a case against our competitive company and made a compromise finally.
Afterwards, we advised our client to change the type of application to be filed. We were fully authorized to compose the patent specifications and specified drawings and in the same year, we filed another application. After two years of reviewing examinations and communications, we successfully obtained the approval for certification in March of 2015 and win advantages in future cases concerning patent rights.
