Japan Proposes Training for Patent Agents

In some cases, agents try to earn commissions by urging small and midsized companies to apply for patent screening in situations where patents are unlikely to be issued, the official said.

Hi all...

A patent attorney is an attorney who has the specialized qualifications necessary for representing clients in obtaining patents and acting in all matters and procedures relating to patent law and practice, such as filing an opposition.

Thanks.
