00:00:05,140 --> 00:00:09,320
Obtaining international patent
protection is important, but it can be difficult.

2
00:00:09,320 --> 00:00:17,869
It typically involves
duplication and redundancy with millions

3
00:00:17,869 --> 00:00:22,009
of documents moving around the world.
Protection of your inventions may be

4
00:00:22,009 --> 00:00:30,980
inconsistent globally. What if there were
a single portal where all involved could

5
00:00:30,980 --> 00:00:36,160
easily view, monitor, and manage
intellectual property around the world?

6
00:00:36,160 --> 00:00:41,900
This concept -- a global dossier -- would save countless resources for patent

7
00:00:41,900 --> 00:00:45,753
applicants and IP professionals
worldwide.

8
00:00:45,760 --> 00:00:49,100
The five largest IP offices -- the IP five --

9
00:00:49,260 --> 00:00:52,240
are working to make global
dossier a reality.

10
00:00:52,240 --> 00:00:58,300
one that is envisioned to be expanded to IP offices outside of the IP five.

11
00:00:58,460 --> 00:01:00,460
With input from IP five industry groups,

12
00:01:00,580 --> 00:01:03,540
the World
Intellectual Property Organization and

13
00:01:03,540 --> 00:01:09,960
stakeholders all around the world, the IP
five is developing the suite of services

14
00:01:10,160 --> 00:01:12,100
needed for global dossier.

15
00:01:12,540 --> 00:01:18,520
Dossier access is the first part of the
working global dossier. It gives users

16
00:01:18,520 --> 00:01:22,659
online access to the documents in the
prosecution history of related

17
00:01:22,659 --> 00:01:25,768
applications filed at participating
offices

18
00:01:25,768 --> 00:01:27,909
now you can save time searching

19
00:01:27,909 --> 00:01:29,271
across patent families.

20
00:01:29,271 --> 00:01:32,469
Application
documents are available at your fingertips,

21
00:01:32,469 --> 00:01:35,619
and you can access machine translated

22
00:01:35,619 --> 00:01:39,539
documents in real time on your own --
saving time and money.

23
00:01:39,540 --> 00:01:44,920
global patent quality is improved because examiners have access to more relevant prior art

24
00:01:45,160 --> 00:01:51,640
earlier in the examination process and
because Dossier Access allows for more

25
00:01:51,640 --> 00:01:55,450
consistent patent application
prosecution globally, it provides greater

26
00:01:55,450 --> 00:02:01,320
predictability for patent applicants.

27
00:02:02,140 --> 00:02:04,560
The ultimate goal of global dossier is to

28
00:02:04,569 --> 00:02:09,160
allow applicants to file an application
in multiple patent offices from a single portal,

29
00:02:09,660 --> 00:02:13,930
reducing the burden and redundant
processes associated with cross filing.

30
00:02:13,930 --> 00:02:18,549
You'll be able to monitor and identify
issues during prosecution across all

31
00:02:18,549 --> 00:02:23,760
participating offices, allowing you to
act more quickly as developments unfold.

32
00:02:23,760 --> 00:02:28,920
The USPTO is in charge of evaluating the
process needed to make this a reality.

33
00:02:28,920 --> 00:02:33,459
We're exploring the ways sharing
documents among participating offices

34
00:02:33,459 --> 00:02:37,116
within today's IP 5 legal framework is
feasible.

35
00:02:37,116 --> 00:02:39,250
A mechanism that allows IP

36
00:02:39,250 --> 00:02:44,019
offices to exchange prosecution-related
documents could significantly reduce the

37
00:02:44,019 --> 00:02:47,744
administrative burden on patent
applicants.

38
00:02:47,744 --> 00:02:50,139
You can help us implement Global Dossier.

39
00:02:50,139 --> 00:02:55,120
Keep up-to-date about
Global Dossier on our website where

40
00:02:55,120 --> 00:03:00,639
you'll learn about the launch of new
services. Use these services and share

41
00:03:00,640 --> 00:03:05,600
your comments and suggestions about them,
to help us develop a global dossier that

42
00:03:05,620 --> 00:03:06,700
best serves you.
