The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), in furtherance of the Global Dossier Initiative, launched the first service for Global Dossier - Dossier Access Friday, November 20, 2015. Dossier Access is a user-friendly online interface, which will make it easier for patent applicants to quickly and easily view, monitor, and manage intellectual property (IP) protection around the world by providing access to the dossiers of related applications filed at participating offices.
The Office of International Patent Cooperation (OIPC) will be conducting two information sessions on Global Dossier in January 2016. These sessions are an opportunity for stakeholders to learn more about the Global Dossier Initiative. An in-depth presentation will be given and Global Dossier project experts will also provide a demonstration of the tool and be available to address questions. In addition, in-person participants at USPTO Headquarters will have the opportunity for hands-on interaction with the tool.
Information session participation is limited and requires advance registration. To register, please send an e-mail to GlobalDossier@USPTO.gov with the date and time you would like to participate. If you are participating remotely, you will receive instructions on how to log into the remote session when you receive your registration acknowledgment.
