Once they have discovered the world of intellectual copyright, many inventors and entrepreneurs begin their search for information about patents. The annual report published by the Patent Office is an excellent source of information.
In its report, the Israeli Patent Office provides information valuable for inventors, entrepreneurs and anyone else taking an interest in the field of intellectual copyright, patents, PCT, designs and trademarks.
The Patent Office’s report provides a wealth of information about the structure of the Patent Office, its various departments and activities, changes to patent legislation, models and trademarks and different statistical cross sectional analyses regarding those filing requests for patents. For example: The report issued by the Patent Office for 2010 tells us that requests for patent can be divided up into fields as follows: Computing and Electronics – 41%; Mechanics and telecommunications – 11%; Biotechnology – 17%; Chemistry – 31%.
This and other information can be very valuable for inventors and entrepreneurs, because it provides an indication of the commercial activities associated with patents, designs and trademarks, when they themselves are about to file a request for patent, or the registration of a design or trademark.
The information also includes Israel’s global rating in terms of the number of people filing requests for patents in other countries. The information available can help inventors and commercial entrepreneurs with an idea for an invention, seeking to register a patent, design or trademark.
