July 2017 - KR: Addition of legal event codes

Post by Patent Data Services » Fri Jul 28, 2017 2:39 pm

For Korean utility models, new data is available related to
- changes of applicants and
- old opposition proceedings.

The following INPADOC legal event codes were created:

Event code description (based on information from the Korean Intellectual Property Office) ___ INPADOC legal event code
Publication of Registration [Utility Model]: Decision on Publication of Application ___ G161
Change of Applicant [Utility Model]: Notification of Change of Applicant and Registration of Full Transfer of Right ___ N232
Change of Applicant [Utility Model]: Notification of Change of Applicant and Registration of Partial Transfer of Right ___ N233
Opposition [Utility Model]: Request for Opposition ___ O032
Opposition [Utility Model]: Request for Opposition of Lawful Right Holder ___ O033
Decision on Refusal after Opposition [Utility Model]: Decision to Refuse Application ___ O061
Revocation of Registration by Opposition [Utility Model]: Final Registration of Opposition ___ O062
Decision to Grant Registration after Opposition [Utility Model]: Decision to Grant Registration ___ O071
Maintenance of Registration after Opposition [Utility Model]: Final Registration of Opposition ___ O072
Withdrawal of Opposition [Utility Model] ___ O121
Decision on Opposition [Utility Model] ___ O131

For Korean patents and patent applications, we expect to introduce within the next few weeks a similar set of new INPADOC legal event codes related to changes of applicants and to opposition proceedings. Please have a look at the list of Legal Status Codes (http://www.epo.org/searching-for-patent ... eekly.html) for additions.
