If someone is granted with utility model can he/she claim it to be granted a Patent?
Is it legally acceptable?
Relevant answer
Answer
It would depend on the jurisdiction because patents are national rights as are utility models. Many countries don't have utility models and there are some which have what are called "petty patents" which are like utility models. I am only qualified to advise on UK law (and it would be a criminal offense under the UK Patent Act to mark a product so as to claim to have a UK patent if you didn't have a UK patent), but the rule of thumb for every jurisdiction must be to act honestly and reasonably. So if you have a German Utility Model then say you have a German Utility Model, if you have an Indian Patent Application, then claim you have an Indian Patent Application, etc etc

Please will you send me links to anything you have come across that relates to the questions of : (i) can/should AI-derived work be IPR protected? and
(ii) can/should an AI be seen as creative to the extent that IPR come into play?
Yes, DABUS, but I haven't seen everything over DABUS, so please send it (preferably downloadable).
(iii) there are Masters and PhD theses, and publications thereof out there - please send them in.
I take IPR and patentability seriously - look at my publications. This is a request for help to find more , not a Masters' student's request that you do her work for her. If, like a certain German PhD student, you have finished, but not yet submitted, just tell me and I will keep YOUR insights private until you publish.
My name is Julian Cockbain, and for the last two decades my primary concern has been 'just what should the state protect, if anything, in relation to immaterial 'things''?
Relevant answer
Answer
My view is that, at this point in the evolution of AI and machine learning, the derivative work is not patent eligible. if you take a look at my argument in [1]. The main point in the article is that currently, at most, AI could get a non obviousness rejection since the work can be traced to a recombination of existing elements. I build up my argument from a mathematical viewpoint and the implications for a challenge to AI inventiveness would have to be resolved by providing evidence through a discovery process. The discovery would revolve around providing further support of creativeness and autonomy.
If you want to, you can message me and we can discuss it in-depth.

Better quality image for Journal submission : 
When submitting images to journals (as part of the illustration to new innovations or techniques, disease processes or patient slides) it is recommended that an image have at least 300 DPI prior to submission. 
DPI (Dots per inch) is a measure of image scanner dot density, in particular the number of individual dots that can be placed in a line within the span of 1 inch of that image. 
Manipulating the DPI within your image can be done by using purchased editing programs or online tools. 
However, it can also be easily adjusted on your pre-existing image by simply uploading and converting the DPI on your image (without cost), prior to journal submission, by using the following link (via Google Chrome) : 
Hope this link helps someone out there,
Good luck colleagues, and keep writing ✍️

Relevant answer
Answer
Patents are all about making information available - the whole idea behind them is to give an inventor exclusive rights in exchange for disclosing how the invention works. So "access" to the information is not a problem, rather, it's the whole point.
Few inventors or small businesses can afford to patent an invention all around the world, and entrepreneurs in the smaller countries are often free to make and sell products that are patented in, say, the US, Europe, Japan, and China. That's good for the local economy, and it's not exactly a "threat" to the inventor -- although it can reduce the potential to earn profits in those countries. Inventors have to make a business decision on where they intend to market the product, and how much they should invest in patent protection in those countries.

In my research paper, to bring some evidence, I need to take screenshots of my codes. To this end, I am using Screenshot tools, e.g. Free Snipping and FastStone Capture. Also, I am increasing the pictures' DPI to 300 and producing PDF and emf formats of such pictures. However, the quality of pictures is still inadequate when they are placed into Word documents.
I am wondering how to prepare high quality pictures for research papers? especially pictures produced through screenshoting.
Thank you in advance.

Answer
Here I am giving you some suggestions, you may try:
Suggestion 1:
You can enlarge the content before you take a screen shot by pressing cmd + + on Mac or ctrl + + on Windows. This is easier than seeking out a retina computer at times.
Suggestion 2:
There is a paper with some ideas: Mikheev, S.M. and Kurilin, I.V. and Vil’kin, A.M. and Rychagov, M.N. and Lee, HoKeun and Kim, SangHo and Choi, DonChul Improving the print quality of screenshots Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis October 2015, Volume 25, Issue 4, pp 674-684 link.springer.com/article/10.1134/…
Suggestion 3:
A screen shot is literally that...what the user would see on screen. There is no need to make it any higher resolution or sharper than it is. It is what it is and that is what you should show the user.
In other words: It's fine. Just leave it! :)
That said, the lazy solution: If you can run the software or web site on a Retina MacBook, use that, as your screen shot will contain 4x the pixels by default.
If the issue, on the other hand, is that your images are getting fuzzy in software they are being imported into, the issue is potentially that the images are being converted to JPG and resampled. This is common when making PDFs. A workaround for that would be:
  • save screen shots as PNG files by default--not JPGs
  • Make sure your image import settings (or, if PDF, your image compression settings) are set to
· do not resample
· do not convert to JPG
Suggestion 4:
Maximize the size of the image you're taking a screenshot of; make it fill the screen as much as you can.
Use 'Snipimage' to exactly fit the image you want. (Start > All Programs > Accessories ... & I recommend pinning it to the taskbar where it's conveniently there when you want it)
Click File> Send to> Email recipient as attachment
Drag the attachment from the email which opens into a directory, so you've got a copy of it.
Close the email.
Now try putting this image into PowerPoint (or word, or whatever). It behaves much better than the original screenshot.
I hope this will be helpful for you.
Best Wishes

Intellectual Property rights and Breeder Rights in floriculture and landscaping especially in Indian context
Relevant answer
Answer
1. Essentially derived varieties should have details of parentage and otherwise new varieties may be from natural selection from seed origin population and should have distinct characterers from others in population. To register it as a variety it should be tested at multilocation for stabilty of desirable traits.
2. Registration is done at PPVFRA (in India). Breeders usually has/have IPR rights but if it is developed by public funding then organisation has IPR policy for that.
3. Landscaping method if it is innovative then can be patented with registrar of patent (in India).
4. Landscape technique if published then should be referred keeping plagiarism policy under consideration.

The long dispute between Hynix (producer of DRAM) and Rambus, patent owner and licensor of related IP rights seems to be over. However a lot of questions remained unanswered. It is already practice that such disputes end with a settlement. However there is also a public enforcement dimension to these cases. In Europe the cases brought before the CJEU (General Court) are based on antitrust law. In the U.S. the litigation started with a similar action initiated by the FTC, but most of the confrontation was related to IP law and the allegations brought by Rambus against Hynix. Rambus is a very successful patent litigant and they won even in this case. However, a little but important battle was a success for Hynix. They succeeded to obtain the reduction of the total amount of royalties to be paid with $250,000,000 with reference to Rambus' spoliation of evidence (JEDEC documentation).
In Europe the actions for annulment against the Commission decisions giving authority to the commitments undertaken by Rambus in 2009 were withdrawn on 5 July 2013.

In the age of open economy and transformation of material wealth to information as  wealth, and the widespread application of IPR, it seems that the geoscientists are not getting their due in terms of number of patents applied/granted when compared with other sciences. It does not mean that we, the geoscientists are not generating enough information or design processes worthy of getting patents. Even the routine academic performance is also being measured in terms of number of patents generated out of academic research!! On the contrary, it seems that the number of patents granted to other sciences is multifold higher than the geosciences. Please share your thoughts on whether we should work on problems worthy of generating patents. I am putting forth this question to get convincing answer and also to spread awareness on the importance of IPR regime in geoscientific research.

I want to know about the status of patenting a gene in India and in abroad.
Is it possible in India? I have read somewhere that it's not. In USA its allowed. What are the pre-requisites for the application?
Relevant answer
Answer
In Europe, the relevant clauses are Art 52(2) and (3) EPC - discoveries 'as such' are not patentable. However, isolated, purified, or modified, the DNA molecules corresponding to all or part of a gene may be patented as long as they are novel and inventive over what is already known and there is some use suggested for them. To this extent, the position in the US post AMP v Myriad is more constrictive than that in Europe.
