TOPTEAM’s Attorney Provides Patent Search and Drafting skill Training Sessions for Graduate Students in NCKU 

3月31日、4月14日兩天本所專利師林台聖受邀到成大醫工所碩博士研究生授課

國立成功大學生物醫學工程所本學期開設《創新醫材專利與法規策略管理》課程,邀請本所專利師林台聖到校授課,就申請專利前期兩個核心工作:專利檢索策略、及專利撰寫範圍分析,提供完整介紹與實務練習指引,相關技巧尤其能幫助學生判斷自身發明有無申請專利的價值。

TOPTEAM has recently worked with the Biomedical Engineering department of the National Cheng Kung University in two workshops focused on patent search strategy and patent claim drafting. The techniques shared and ideas discussed during the workshops are particularly useful for researchers to better understand the value of their research in terms of patenting new ideas.   Each workshop, delivered as part of a graduate school course “Innovative Medical Device Patent and Regulatory Strategy management”, includes a 3 hour lecture and a following 3 hour group exercise session.

這門課程開設對象為碩博士班學生,今年修課學生除本地學生外,也有高比例的外籍生,來自越南、馬來西亞、泰國等多國。其背景涵蓋不同科別,包含醫生、生物技術及工程科系。

More than half of participants are graduate students from overseas including Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Hong Kong. Some of them are medical professionals and most of the rest have a degrees in biology, biomedical, engineering, or a combined discipline of the preceding studies. 

林台聖專利師於3月31日、4月14日進行兩場專利與實務課程,從發明概念出發,延伸到準備專利申請文件之前的發明構想揭露書準備、與之後的申請策略規劃及專利審查,簡要專利申請流程說明,幫助學生了解如何從發明創新,逐步推進到進一步取得有價值的專利。

The first workshop was held on March 31, 2020 and led by one of our patent attorneys, Henry Lin. Mr. Lin started with an overview of patent application process, from an inventive concept; invention disclosure preparation; patent application preparation and filing; examination at the Patent office prior to patent grant. The rules to patent inventions in most countries are similar but with some variation in requirements.

第一天的課程著眼於研發的早期階段,研究人員若想更快找到相關專利文獻,來判斷自身發明有無申請專利的價值,有賴於專利前案檢索;要能取到較準確的檢索結果,則需要正確使用專利分類系統,來過濾龐雜無用資訊。林專利師也以實例練習,幫助學員掌握如何把技術主題對應到專利分類號,逐步精簡搜尋結果。

In the early stage of patent application preparation, prior art searches enable【researchers/inventors】to find patent documents of relevant inventions and weight on the value of further applications accordingly. What is more, using an patent classification system as a search tool can greatly filter out useless search results. Mr. Lin put a focus on the International Patent Classification (IPC), the most common used system and prepared hands on exercises for participants to get familiar with the classification rules.

第二天的課程則由專利文件的導讀,帶學員瞭解怎樣的權利申請範圍,才能為發明提供攻守俱佳的保護;接著也準備發明揭露書範例,讓學員嘗試分析可行的權利申請範圍。兩天課程將成為選課學生的期中考內容,講師期許透過兩天的課程,幫助學員日後研發時能夠獲得有用參考資訊,取得研發成果時,也知道如何申請專利,能與專利師順暢合作。

The subject of the next workshop on April 14 was patent claim drafting. Mr. Lin elaborated what makes a good claim for both defensive and offensive purposes by reviewing typical patent documents with the class and preparing invention disclosure samples designed for group exercise. 

Since the content covered in the workshops will be included in the midterm exam of the course. Mr. Lin will also help to assess students’ submissions for the part.

林台聖專利師曾經任職國內機械廠,他擁有台大化學工程系學士、及美國德州農工大學材料工程學碩士學位,目前主要從事專利申請、答辯、檢索分析等業務;擅長的專業領域包括機械工程、顯示技術、材料與半導體等。

Mr. Lin has joined TOPTEAM since 2017. He received his bachelor’s degree in chemical mechanical engineering from National Taiwan University and his master’s degree in material science and engineering from the Texas A&M University. He specializes in patent searching, drafting and prosecuting patent applications in the fields of mechanical engineering, display technologies, and semiconductor materials.
