年底大瓜第二弹 | 荷兰专利代理人协会正面刚谣言

发布时间:2021.12.23查看:1234 评论:5

近日,荷兰专利代理人协会Nederlandse Orde van Octrooigemachtigden)在12月的“Circulaire”通函中,正式回应了此前发表的掀起轩然大波的关于中国申请人申请荷兰专利的文章。

代理人协会对此事表示了极大的关切,认为该文章对荷兰专利代理行业造成了很大的影响,有必要进行回应。尤其针对文章关于新颖性检索的要求,代理人协会表示,根据现行的荷兰专利法,荷兰的专利代理人没有义务在客户没有要求的情况下进行新颖性检索。在荷兰专利局并未在官方渠道发布任何官方正式通知的情况下,专利代理人应该并且有能力根据自己的专业素养来进行判断

此次荷兰专利代理人协会的回应,完全印证了中微知著之前的判断,也与我们立场契合,那篇引发热议的期刊文章既不具备法律效力,也没有得到荷兰代理人的认可和欢迎,中国的申请人和专利代理人完全不必担忧,接下来荷兰专利的申请不会受到那篇期刊文章的影响
 
当然,提高专利申请质量,是我们每一位有理想有责任感的中国知识产权从业者长期的努力方向。此次荷兰专利事件是一个很好的自省和提高的机会。
 
随着中国科技创新的高速发展,越来越多的技术正在走出国门,在国际各个国家争取认可和保护。持续提高海外专利申请质量,规范法律文书,保护我国的知识产权和国家尊严,是我们国际知产人重要的责任和使命。


荷兰专利代理人协会发文译文:
Reaction of the Board of the Professional Patent Attorney Association Bar on: "Growth of Dutch applications from China" (posted on behalf of OCNL in Circularly brief 10, November 2021).

In the previous Circularly Brief, a Memorandum was published on behalf of (and written by) the NL Patent Office regarding applications from China which do not serve a legitimate interest, because they would be (machine) translations of already published Chinese applications and often concern subjects for which the Netherlands is clearly not a relevant market.

The document led to the necessary reactions and questions to the Board of the Association, in particular concerning the balance between the interests of the client on the one hand and the rules of conduct which prescribe that a member must "do everything possible to uphold the honour and reputation of the profession".

Without wishing to go into the details of specific cases, the Board does not read in the said request that an agent must carry out a novelty search at his own expense and without instruction from the client. The Board understands the request to be a request to the profession to be critical towards clients regarding applications that at first sight already (should) lead to serious doubts about the actual intentions. Offices/authorised representatives should have and have to be able to make their own considerations in this respect.

We expect that this clarification will remove most of the concerns.

    是不是可以说,国外并没有对中国专利申请、中国专利代理人、中国专利代理机构产生偏见,我们可以继续一如既往地玩中国专利申请
