2019 IP Academy Series: Anticipation and Obviousness

Friday, September 13, 2019

Join us for a discussion on how to better respond to US novelty and inventive step rejections. Japan and the United States have different laws and rules for novelty and inventive step, and an effective response to an examiner’s rejection must be in accordance with each country’s practice.

Topics will include:       

  • Review and comparison of US and Japanese legal standards for anticipation and obviousness
  • Recent cases regarding anticipation and obviousness
  • Practical tips on how to respond to an examiner’s rejections
