Since the publication of the 2nd edition additional countries especially in Asia have become more prominent in industry. This completely revised edition takes account of the changing information scene e.g. in new chapters like BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India, and China), Asia and regional patent systems or Sources for legal status searching. This is an essential reference tool for academic librarians and information specialists as well as anyone needing to know where and how patent information can be found. Stephen R. Adams , Managing Director at Magister Limited, Reading, Great Britain
This second edition provides a systematic introduction to the work and views of the emerging patent-search research and innovation communities as well as an overview of what has been achieved and, perhaps even more importantly, of what remains to be achieved. It revises many of the contributions of the first edition and adds a significant number of new ones. The first part Introduction to Patent Searching includes two overview chapters on the peculiarities of patent searching and on contemporary search technology respectively, and thus sets the scene for the subsequent parts. The second part on Evaluating Patent Retrieval then begins with two chapters dedicated to patent evaluation campaigns, followed by two chapters discussing complementary issues from the perspective of patent searchers and from the perspective of related domains, notably legal search. High Recall Search includes four completely new chapters dealing with the issue of finding only the relevant documents in a reasonable time span. The last (and with six papers the largest) part on Special Topics in Patent Information Retrieval covers a large spectrum of research in the patent field, from classification and image processing to translation. Lastly, the book is completed by an outlook on open issues and future research. Several of the chapters have been jointly written by intellectual property and information retrieval experts. However, members of both communities with a background different to that of the primary author have reviewed the chapters, making the book accessible to both the patent search community and to the information retrieval research community. It also not only offers the latest findings for academic researchers, but is also a valuable resource for IP professionals wanting to learn about current IR approaches in the patent domain. Mihai Lupu obtained his PhD degree in 2008 under the Singapore-MIT Alliance at the National University of Singapore, where he researched data retrieval in peer-to-peer networks. He is continuing his research in the area of information retrieval, with an emphasis on patent retrieval, cross-lingual retrieval and chemical structure retrieval evaluation. Previously, he organised the Chemical IR Evaluation campaign and the Patent Information Retrieval workshop series. Now at the TU Wien he has expanded his research interest into areas such as credibility of IR, eHealth, and multimodal search. Katja Mayer (PhD, University of Vienna) specialized in social studies of science and worked as a consultant, science communication officer and university lecturer. She has been interested in the historical and social implications of information retrieval applications. A focus of her research is on the public impact of search technologies and visualization. Her current research is devoted to data practices in computational social science in the context of the open science movement. She is associated faculty at the University of Vienna and the Technical University Munich. Noriko Kando is a professor in the Information-society Research Division of the National Institute of Informatics (NII), Tokyo, Japan, and has been co-appointed as a professor in the Department of Informatics at the Graduate University of Advanced Studies, Japan. She initiated NTCIR, an evaluation of information-access technologies, such as information retrieval, summarization, question answering, and text mining, using East Asian languages and English documents, and has been a main designer of various tasks including patent retrieval. Anthony (Tony) Trippe is Managing Director of Patinformatics, LLC. Tony has been a patent information professional for twenty-two years, and has spent the last twenty specializing in technical intelligence, patent analytics and patent landscapes. Tony is also an Adjunct Professor of IP Management and Markets at Illinois Institute of Technology teaching a course on patent analysis, and tools for strategic decision making. Mr. Trippe is an influential thought leader in the patent analysis space, has been named one of the Top 300 IP Strategists by IAM Magazine, and invented the term Patinformatics. He is also the author of the popular Patinformatics blog.
We come in contact with many trademarks each day on television, retail stores, Internet. The Business of Trademarks explains why trademarks are so important to businesses and how they identify the manufacturer and guarantee consistent quality to achieve brand loyalty. The Business of Trademarks is intended as a practical guide for those new to trademarks, including attorneys, paralegals and law students requiring a concise, comprehensive book on trademark prosecution to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to perform day-to-day trademark work diligently, confidently and with efficiency. Specific topics covered are: * Trademark searching for clearance * Forms to be filed with the Patent and Trademark Office * Famous trademarks and trade dress * Responding to office actions * Methods of enforcing trademarks * Trademarks in commercial transactions The Business of Trademarks is unique from other publications because it explains trademark management from a hands-on approach, including administrative duties which few attorneys handle themselves.
The peace and quiet of a remote homestead in the 1880s American West is shattered by the arrival of two shadowy outriders searching for ´the healer´. When the farmer refuses to help them, they raze the house to the ground using guns that shoot bolts of energy instead of bullets. In the town of Redwater, the Doctor and Martha learn of a snake-oil salesman who´s patent medicines actually cure his patients. But when they investigate, the truth is stranger, and far more dangerous. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Will Thorp.

In 1943, Albert Schatz, a young Rutgers College Ph.D. student, worked on a wartime project in microbiology professor Selman Waksman´s lab, searching for an antibiotic to fight infections on the front lines and at home. In his 11th experiment on a common bacterium found in farmyard soil, Schatz discovered streptomycin, the first effective cure for tuberculosis, one of the world´s deadliest diseases. As director of Schatz´s research, Waksman took credit for the discovery, belittled Schatz´s work, and secretly enriched himself with royalties from the streptomycin patent filed by the pharmaceutical company Merck. In an unprecedented lawsuit, young Schatz sued Waksman, and was awarded the title of ´´co-discoverer´´ and a share of the royalties. But two years later, Professor Waksman alone was awarded the Nobel Prize. Schatz disappeared into academic obscurity. For the first time, acclaimed author and journalist Peter Pringle unravels the intrigues behind one of the most important discoveries in the history of medicine. The story unfolds on a tiny college campus in New Jersey, but its repercussions spread worldwide. The streptomycin patent was a breakthrough for the drug companies, overturning patent limits on products of nature and paving the way for today´s biotech world. As dozens more antibiotics were found, many from the same family as streptomycin, the drug companies created oligopolies and reaped big profits. Pringle uses firsthand accounts and archives in the United States and Europe to reveal the intensely human story behind the discovery that started a revolution in the treatment of infectious diseases and shaped the future of Big Pharma. 1.
