The closing meeting for “Case Study by Trial and Appeal Experts”

May 20, 2016

The closing meeting for “Case Study by Trial and Appeal Experts” for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 was held on May 17, 2016, chaired by Executive Chief Administrative Judge of the Japan Patent Office (JPO) Akira Tanji. “Case Study by Trial and Appeal Experts” is a meeting where patent practitioners from various fields, such as industry players, patent attorneys, lawyers and administrative judges, gather together for conducting study on trial/appeal decisions and judgments. It has been conducted continually since FY2006 (originally called “Case Study on Inventive Step”). At the meeting, the outcomes of the studies conducted during FY2015 were reported, and attendees subsequently exchanged opinions based on the results presented.

The JPO will hold meetings of Case Study by Trial and Appeal Experts in FY2016 as well, and make the results of the study available to the public. The JPO will also effectively utilize the outcomes of the studies to enhance the quality of trials and appeals.
