JPO Conducted Training Course on Substantive Examinations of Trademarks

November 30, 2017

 

Under the aim of strengthening the protection of intellectual property rights 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, and Africa, and conducting training programs for them in Japan.

From November 17 to 30, the JPO conducted the Training Course on the Substantive Examinations of Trademarks and a total of 14 trademark examiners from 8 countries attended the course. In this training course, trainees learned examination guidelines and quality management for trademark examination including non-traditional trademarks, such as color and sound. Also, they deepened their knowledge on the subject of the trademark examination practices through on-the-job training, case studies using actual application examples, etc., by the JPO staff.

The JPO has high expectations that the trainees will play important and active roles in their countries.
