JPO Conducted Training Course
on Practitioners Specializing in Trademark

December 21, 2016

In order to support developing countries with the development of human resources who engage in the industrial property rights system, the Japan Patent Office (JPO) has been inviting trainees from developing and emerging countries of the Asia-Pacific region, Latin America, Africa, and other regions, to provide training programs for them in Japan.

From December 8 to 21, the JPO conducted the IPR Training Course on Practitioners Specializing in Trademark, targeting for trademark practitioners working in law firms or private companies in Asian countries.

A total of 26 trainees attended this Course, and received the lectures on the current status of trademark-related policies in Japan, the Examination Guidelines for Trademarks, practices of handling trademark applications, case studies of trademark infringement suits, and so on, which helped them to deepen their understanding of overall practices in the field of trademarks. In addition, they learned companies’ branding strategy and IP management by visiting a company and receiving the lectures.

The JPO has high expectations that the trainees will be active in the field after going back to their countries.
