Japanese IP law amended

Japanese IP law amendedThe Patent Docs blog posted an update to changes in the Japanese patent law. As of April 1, 2009, foreign applicants will have longer to file appeals against final rejections. Other changes include better protection for the licensee in the case of a non-exclusive license, especially at the application stage of a patent. For more details, see the Japan Patent Office's web pages (Japanese only).

This is good news for drug and device manufacturers. Firms spend enormous efforts to understand, adhere to, and navigate global patent standards. And as the world's number two market for both pharmaceuticals and devices, Japan receives particular attention.
