Release of September Appeal Decisions by the JPO

For our foreign attorneys who may be interested in reading the results of appeals issued by the JPO, we will begin linking to those decisions when they come out. The JPO provides the outcome of these decisions in both Japanese and English. To access the decisions, go to the link on this page on the JPO website. At the top of the page there is a hyperlink “参考審決等の英訳(エクセル:58KB)”. This is an excel spreadsheet that has English language hyperlinks for all of the decisions issued, and the excel document breaks down what areas the decisions deal with such as issues related to inventive step.
Please note that the JPO specifically states that it shall not be held responsible for the accuracy of the translations.
