July 28, 2022
In the first seminar in a three-part series presenting advanced aspects of Japanese patent law that are not often discussed in English, we explore the concept of Easy+Easy as it applies to inventive step. Join us as we talk through the basics of Easy+Easy, present various examples, and describe the subtle reasons why each example either falls under the Easy+Easy framework or fails to meet the standard. We also discuss how patent professionals can use the Easy+Easy framework to create more valuable patent portfolios.
