Would you please share your experience from where I can collect firm-level green patent citations for green innovation? Please mention the name of the source ( I prefer free one).
Dear Members, I registered a patent recently. I want to sell it to a company, my question is that after I have sold the patent, can I still mention the patent in my CV as a patent sold by me for a certain amount? For example, the patent ABC is sold at XXX.
I came across a paper describing how they expressed a plant protein in e. coli in abundance and preserved its activity. In that paper they described the sequence, expression condition, etc. I thought it would be helpful for my research project and wanted to express it myself. If it works well I will cite them in my paper. But in another paper from the same group, they actually cited their first paper and said the technology has been "patented". I looked up the patent, and it seems like they patented "a method" and "a sequence design" to express this protein in bacteria. Problem is, their very first paper never said anything about that method was going to be patented! If I had never read their second paper, I would have probably violated the patent law already! My question is, how do you find out if people have patented their technologies in their papers?? And, do I have to contact the author every time when I want to try out any methods in research papers??
Monoclonal antibody biosimilars are the monoclonal antibody produced from the same standards of pharmacutical quality as the original monoclonal antibody when the patent of the original expires. I noticed that the biosimilars are sometimes claimed by other companies who did not initially earn the patent.
What is the reason that the monoclonal antibody biosimilar is claimed by another company other than the company that claimed the patent for the original mAb?
Is there a patent law that prohibits this?
Otherwise, it is somewhat confusing as to why the original company does not claim it and own the patent for a longer time.
In which cases is it better to deal with national authorities and on the other hand, in which cases is it more suitable to fill the regional priority patent application.
What is your opinion about this patent strategy?
I would really appreciate your experiences worldwide.
In a company invention, the applicant is the owner of the patent and inventors have the right for an adequate reward by the law, wherein on the other hand, in many other cases the inventor is also the applicant. I would like to know your point of view about the probability in which case it is more probable that the inventor could earn nice packet of money.

Each hiPS line technically meets patent requirements: proper subject matter, novelty, nonobviousness, utility, and proper disclosure, but since these elements are constantly in flux in the courts regarding biological material, I wonder if anybody has had success?
I am looking for support with interpretation of laws, both Indian and US/EU, related to compulsory data disclosure from pharmaceutical clinical trials and correlating them with aspects like patent laws, contract laws, Constitutional law, consumer protection laws, etc. Can provide more details.
I am planning to submit my patent application but some of the investor's companies suggest me to buy the formulation instead of waiting for results several years and also if it failed for approving. As I have some different pharmaceutical patent value potential formulation they told me you would better not be the inventor of all of the ideas because it doesn't sound reasonable to the Health Authorities like FDA or European Authority also.
Is there anyone have some experience or information can kindly share with me?

I have found on how to solve the problem of "Buerger’s Disease" [by using a very cheap and safe remedy]. But since I am an independent researcher and I am not faculty of any university, I do not access to any expert in the field, live in a very limited place and several other problems, I am not able to patent the discovery (a plant extraction) and help numerous patients. The discovery has made busy my mind for years and annoy me, while I know the patients are suffering and waiting for an effective treatment. Who can guide me or help me on what can I do?
One of the conditions of accept the patents are to disclosure the all of detail of technology. Thus we can use it's data to catch technical science and technology and use in the countries than not submitted.

Can anyone suggest some article or book?
I need to calcute a variable taking into accont the age of a Technology Class. Following Shane (2001), it can be measured as the number of years since the
three-digit patent class was established by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Is there a document that contain the year when each US class has been established?
More particularly I am interested in an invention which relates to a spring locking clip and associated plunger which can be used to convert a plastic hypodermic syringe barrel into a single-use, difficult to reuse, inexpensive syringe made from already medically approved material. I am also interested in obtaining information pertaining to similar inventions. I sincerely appreciate your input, I look forward to hearing from you all, thanks!
I'm facing two different questions.
(1) Are plants produced by conventional breeders' breeding processes (i.e. cross, select, etc), patentable? This is now before the EBA at the European Patent Office (I believe G-1/98 is wrong), and
(2) Does a method of diagnosis in medicine have to be of a disease condition, and does there have to be a cure available if suffering from the condition is diagnosed? (I believe G-1/04 is wrong). This is now the subject of an opposition.
On both, I have to put my case together in the next week or so. In neither case do I have a financial interest - I just want the law to get back on track.
Can anyone help? Is anyone willing to help? More particularly, are there any non-OB/GYN medics out there who would be willing to talk?
How to protect the traditional ethnomedicinal knowledge of the use of the particular species concerned? As a first step I have identified the chemical responsible for the particular therapy and have not published the paper yet. I first want to get a patent on that.
I have to decide in what countries I have to present a patent. The patent is related to an industrial system to be used in infrastructures.
The patent office is a register office where you claim that you are the first inventor of an invention.
Some people write that now the patents are not presented in every country in the World and if you present it in 4-5 countries, it is considered a global one. It is recommended a country in Europe, USA, Japan or Korea and other in South America or Spain (in Spanish language).
I only say that it would be better that only exists a register for every area (perhaps Europe, South America, North America, Africa and Asia) and that every country have its own agency but uploading the patents to an only one register per area.
Of course I will upload the patent here in Researchgate.
We propose a number of algorithms and frameworks but is it possible to file a patent or copyright for them to protect our work? We only focus on publishing research papers as they have academic advantages?
Sometimes it is said that you should not publish your work before applying for a patent. Is this true? Are there any Do's and Don'ts about patents?
Conventional application or PCT application?
In 2013 the U.S. Supreme Court held that 1) a naturally occurring gene or a DNA segment is a product of nature, and thus not patent eligible merely because it has been isolated, but 2) synthetic complementary DNA ("cDNA") is patent eligible because it is not naturally occurring in AMP vs. Myriad Genetics.
Now there is a new wrinkle to the problem. Scientists may have discovered a second code hiding within DNA. This second code contains information that changes how scientists read the instructions contained in DNA and interpret mutations to make sense of health and disease. (Quoted from: http://www.sciencenewsline.com/articles/2013121222250032.html)
Is this discovery patentable?
Recently I read an article about how abstractly drafted patents can be the killer seeds for inventions. What is a long term solution so that patents will not be the terminators to the invention rather catalysts or accelerator?
I want to patent my research. Can anyone provide me with some suggestions how I should start the procedures?
I would like to know if the the patent number is assigned in chronological order with respect to the issue date. A reference would be really useful.
