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

English Version

本所專利師林台聖 2020年10月 28日受邀到國立成功大學,分別為法律所及生物醫學工程系學生,就申請專利前期兩個核心工作—-專利檢索策略、及專利說明書撰寫,提供扼要介紹並指導實例練習。

授課內容一方面能協助法律從業人員,從訴訟攻防的角度,熟悉專利申請範圍的解釋方式;同時也能幫助研究發明人,透過精準的專利檢索,調整未來的研發方向及專利布局規劃。

TOPTEAM’s patent attorney Henry Lin was invited to share his expertise in patent search and drafting with undergraduate and graduate students at the National Cheng Kung University on Oct 28, 2020. The techniques shared, during two half-day sessions, are very useful in preparation for patent application and strategy planning.

兩個場次課程分別屬於成大法律所的「智慧財產權比較法研究」、及生物醫學工程所的「醫療器材創新設計」課程,林專利師先從發明概念出發,具體介紹申請專利各階段的準備工作與其必要性,包括研發前期的檢索工作、後期的發明構想揭露書、申請前的申請策略規劃、說明書撰寫及專利審查等完整流程。由於兩個班級的學員背景與未來實務需求不同,課程設計也有不同重點。

第一場以律師等專利維權工作者為授課對象,林專利師著眼於訴訟攻防的需求,透過權利請求項 (claim) 的草擬練習,幫助學員熟悉專利範圍的習慣用語與文義,合理界定專利權範圍,進而對於請求項的限制、弱點、如何攻擊或防禦等面相,建立正確概念與基本敏感度。法律所學生首度嘗試撰寫專利範圍,也覺得很有挑戰性。

第二場參與學員,則包括不同背景的本國與外籍碩博士生,授課方向著眼於如何透過精確的專利檢索,更快找到相關專利文獻,進而能在研發的早期階段,及早掌握近似專利,預先規劃未來的研發方向及專利布局,避免後續陷入事倍功半的境地。課堂上並透過實例練習,熟悉如何把技術主題對應到專利分類號,逐步精簡搜尋結果。

The first session is designed to help law practitioners handle patent litigation with a better understanding of reasonable claim interpretation. That session is a part of the course “COMPARATIVE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW (智慧財產權比較法研究)” provided by the Graduate Institute for Legal Sciences (GILS).

Mr. Lin started off with an introduction to the patent application process with a focus on patent claim drafting. He elaborated what makes a good claim for both defensive and offensive purposes by reviewing typical patent documents; then used claim drafting exercises to help participants get familiar with claim wording and be able to develop a clear sense of reasonable claim interpretation in patent prosecution or in a lawsuit. Many participants, who tried patent drafting for the very first time, have found that exercise very challenging.

The other session is aimed at local and foreign medical professionals who may patent their research results or innovative ideas at work. It is a  part of the “Medical Device Innovation-Biodesign Courses (醫療器材創新設計)” at the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Mr. Lin particularly put a focus on prior art searches. In the early research phrase, a prior search enables researchers to find patent documents of relevant inventions, weight on the value of further applications, and devise the filing strategy accordingly. He also led group exercises that participants can learn to filter out useless search results with search tools.

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 in 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.

冠群專利師受邀指導成大「創新醫材專利與法規策略管理」工作坊

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。 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。 […]
