CHEMICAL STRUCTURE PATENT SEARCH

Chemical structure patent searches are conducted by scientists, chemistry patent attorneys, health-professionals, chemists, professionals in the pharmaceutical industry, in-house chemical lawyers and pharmaceutical attorneys.

Many chemical compounds which form subject matter of patent claims are available in the patentscope WIPO database. However, to search relevant patent results, a proper chemical structure patent search strategy should be formed. Researching accurate patent chemical compounds is a daunting task if the chemical structure patent search strategy is not in place. In this chemical structure patent article we will cover a list of checklists to be taken in consideration while performing chemistry based searches. The checklist will be helpful for chemical patent lawyers or pharmaceutical patent attorneys. Whether you are working on patent infringement suit involving chemical compounds or a patent  due diligence project for an acquisition, determining the true value of granted chemical patent will be helpful in the long run.

You can search the patent chemical compounds using the above mentioned patent databases. The patent results can be narrowed down with other relevant keywords and/or IPC, CPC, USPC. If you are an independent chemical researcher searching by compound name will not be useful because related structural analogs will have unrelated names. Therefore to find results covering analogs of chemical compound, you need to perform a chemical structure search in patent databases.

PCT National Phase Patent Filing Procedure in India

The growth rate of Indian patent applications was highest in 2018. Patent filing in India is aimed at obtaining protection from the patent office. PCT patent filing in India can either an international phase application, or a national phase application. A PCT international application is received by the Indian patent office and forwarded to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), whereas a PCT national phase application is filed in India subsequent to a PCT international application.

Experienced patent attorneys provide efficient patent filing and patent prosecution services by analyzing the granted patents and patent prosecution history. This is also helpful in conducting patent infringement analysis, patent validity analysis or patent invalidation searches, and utilizing the patent infringement and patent validity analysis with business intelligence capabilities to provide effective patent strategies.

Inventors across the world plan to file international patent applications to protect their innovation across multiple countries. This can either be achieved by filing a conventional application within 12 months in India or by filing a PCT application with WIPO. The goal is to obtain best possible protection by filing patents.

Patent protection provides an exclusive right to the patent applicant to prevent others from making, using, or selling the patented subjected matter described in legal structure of the patent claims.

Protecting an idea requires protecting by patents, one or more important embodiments of the idea that are patentable. To be eligible for patent protection, the invention as defined by patent claims must be new or novel. By novelty we mean that the invention must not have been patented or described in a prior art publication previously, including both the patent and non-patent literature.

For an invention to be eligible for patent protection, the patent claims must describe an innovation that is capable of industrial application. Patent attorneys are hired to write the provisional patent application and non-provisional patent specification including formal set of patent claims. The provisional patent application provides a priority date for an invention that includes important aspects of the invention, which are drafted as set of formal patent claims at the time of filing non-provisional patent application.

PCT patent application procedure begins by filing complete patent application in your home country, and then subsequently claiming the patent priority date to file an international phase PCT patent application.

Filing an international patent application under the Patent Cooperation Treaty comes with two phases and the national phase is one of the main patent phases of the PCT procedure followed worldwide. After filing a patent under international phase from the home country, the patent applicant can enter his patent application under national phase in one or more contracting states of the PCT treaty.

Time period for the patent applicant to enter national phase patent in India or regional phase patent application under PCT in India is 31 months from the first priority date of the application.

The international patent phase includes filing patent application before the WIPO, wherein a prior art search is conducted by the international searching authority, and a written opinion is issued by the searching examiner on novelty, inventive step and industrial applicability. Thereafter, the PCT patent application is published in the WIPO global database.

However, the international phase ends 30 months or 31 months depending upon the PCT member country from the earliest priority date of the patent application. The patent applicant must decide the PCT member countries where he wants to secure his patent rights according to the business goal and IP strategy. In the PCT member countries where the national phase is not entered by the patent applicant, the international patent application is considered withdrawn or abandoned.

The PCT National Phase Patent application in India is filed with a copy of Complete patent Specification which includes the following details:

  • Patent Abstract
  • Information pertaining to the date on which and the country in which, the patent application for protection was made
  • A set of patent claims claiming the main features of the invention
  • A set of patent drawings, if any.

If the Controller requires, a certified copy of the priority patent document has to be filed within 3 months from the date of communication by the Controller, of such requirement. If the priority document is in a language other than English, a verified English translation must be submitted before the Indian Patent Office.

What is the timeline to file PCT national phase patent in India from the International Patent Filing Date?

Time limit to enter India under National Phase under PCT is 31 months. The National Phase of a PCT Application in India is similar to the filing of a regional patent in India before the Indian Patent Office (IPO).

Growing Law Practice – Guide for Lawyers

patent attorney india

“Efficient management without effective leadership is like straightening deck chairs on the Titanic” – from 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen Covey

A key issue associated with legal practice includes lack of effectiveness. Most lawyers blindly follow any work that comes their way without having any plan or strategy in place.

patent attorney india

After spending years for running a law firm without any strategy, lawyers face various issues like lack of quality work, negligible work-life balance, low / delayed billing etc.

One way to prevent such issues is to understand the lifecycle of legal services by deriving insights from consulting firms like McKinsey & Co.

Providing legal services to clients require executing different projects, which may fall under any of the 3 categories, Brain Projects, Grey Hair Projects and Procedure Type Projects.

Brain projects require expertise when clients face a complex problem for which they will not compromise on lawyer’s fee. For eg., to protect Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) based innovations that form core part of the business, clients will seek an expert patent attorney for drafting and filing patent applications.

Grey Hair projects require experience during high stake matters where expertise is still needed but clients focus on past experience to solve their problems. For eg., obtaining injunctions from court to prevent infringement of client’s patents and trademarks, on which client’s business is heavily dependent.

Procedure type projects require efficiency where clients face a routine or standard set of problems. Clients seek lawyers providing prompt services at low costs. For eg., keeping a track of grant patents and trademarks to pay renewal fee on time, or labour law compliance.

The key to build and grow a successful legal practice is to identify core strength and focus on achieving the right balance between different types of projects. It has to be understood that one cannot execute all types of projects at full scale successfully.
