Ukrpatent continues to receive letters of support from patent offices of different countries.

A letter from the Australian IP office (IP Australia).

--

Dear Director General Kudin,

Thank you for your letter of 15 April 2022. On behalf of IP Australia and its staff, I express my heartfelt support for the Ukrainian people as you face this overwhelming adversity. As a show of IP Australia's strong and continued support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, my intervention at the WIPO Conversation on Frontier Technologiesmlast month condemned Russia's unprovoked and unjust invasion of your country.

I truly respect the conviction, resilience, and spirit you have shown in continuing your role and maintaining the intellectual property system in Ukraine throughout this difficult time. I hope that despite these challenges, we can strengthen cooperation between our offices and work together to improve the global intellectual property system.

I hope we can meet in the future, perhaps in person, when circumstances improve.

Yours sincerely,
Michael Schwager
Director General
IP Australia

Slava Ukraini!


 

During the meeting between the President of the EPO António Campinos and the Director General of the State Enterprise "Ukrainian Institute of Intellectual Property" (Ukrpatent) Andrew Kudin, the directions of the EPO’s assistance to Ukrpatent were discussed in detail. Given the situation faced by Ukraine, the European Office offered the Ukrainian partner an expanded package of support and cooperation measures. The relevant Declaration of Intent was signed by the Heads of the offices.
 
The main area of ​​cooperation is focused on supporting Ukrpatent’s specialists and the continuous operation of the enterprise. The EPO will develop a special internship program and, with the support of the European Patent Academy, provide access to the full training catalog. In addition, among the issues discussed are the support and strengthening of the existing IT infrastructure and the development of new processes. This will extend the existing measures of support by EPO such as the suspension of invoices for EPOQUE Net. Furthermore, support for the national innovation ecosystem is an important issue. It was emphasized that supporting Ukrainian innovators and creating national intellectual property rights are invaluable initiatives that need to be protected and developed. The development of more specific measures in this area is entrusted to the joint EPO-Ukrpatent working group.
 
The EPO notes that despite the extremely difficult conditions, Ukrpatent and its staff continue to work both remotely and from the headquarters. Addressing the EPO staff, the Director General Andrew Kudin thanked Ukrpatent staff for their resilience and determination as they continue to provide services to stakeholders and customers.

The partners of the State Enterprise "Ukrainian Intellectual Property Institute" (Ukrpatent) continue to take specific support steps for Ukrpatent. The publisher Wiley Subscription Services, Inc. (USA) and FIZ Karlsruhe, Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure (Germany), express their solidarity with the Ukrainian people and severe condemnation of Russian aggression on our territory.

Deputy Head of the Information Support Division Oksana PARKHETA brings to notice that the publisher Wiley Subscription Services, Inc., whose online library's electronic products provide access to articles published in Wiley's scientific and technical journals including the journals from the list of non-patent literature of the PCT minimum documentation, informed Ukrpatent on providing free access to its resource in 2022 on the platform of the Research4Life project.

Also, FIZ Karlsruhe, Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure, which provides access to scientific, research and patent literature, published research on chemical structures, sequences and material properties, suspended invoicing for the use of the STN service and provided free access to Ukrpatent until April 2023 so that Ukrpatent examiners were able to perform their work continuously under rough conditions. 

The use of the aforementioned resources is necessary for a quality information search, in particular in the context of Ukrpatent's functioning as the National Intellectual Property Office as well as the International Searching Authority and the International Preliminary Examining Authority. 

"During martial law, under a number of restrictions imposed by the Government, the release of Ukrpatent from financial liability under the agreements concluded with the leading companies of the world on the use of commercial information resources is a significant practical assistance from providers, because access to such resources is an important tool for information support of the examination process at the appropriate level that contributes to the uninterrupted functioning of the national patent office during this incredibly difficult time for the country" – mentions Oksana PARKHETA.

The partners of the Ukrpatent - Clarivate Analytics, American Chemical Society (ACS), Research4Life project) - are the providers of foreign commercial information resources which ensure Ukrpatent examiners with access to the PCT minimum documentation (patent documentation and non-patent literature) via the Internet. The use of the aforementioned resources is necessary for a quality information search, in particular in the context of Ukrpatent functioning as the International Searching Authority (ISA) and the International Preliminary Examining Authority (IPEA).

According to Deputy Head of the Information Support Division of Ukrpatent Oksana Parkheta, Clarivate Analytics, American Chemical Society (ACS), and Research4Life project join the global community in condemning Russia’s attack on Ukraine and have announced their support and admiration for Ukrpatent uninterrupted operations.

The providers have already taken specific support steps for Ukrpatent and users from Ukraine:

The Research4Life project (Switzerland) publisher partners have taken steps to expand access to information resources for Ukrainian institutions. Thus, the Access to Research for Development and Innovation (ARDI) program coordinated by WIPO and subscribed to by Ukrpatent, together with its partners in the publishing industry, additionally made available free complimentary online access to 15 scientific and technical journals that were not previously available to users in Ukraine including those from the list of non-patent literature of the PCT minimum documentation, as well as the possibility of free use of content in 2022. All organizations and institutions from Ukraine using programs within the Research4Life project were provided with free access to them.

The American Chemical Society (ACS) (USA) the products of which provide online access to articles published in scientific and technical journals of the American Chemical Society, including journals from the list of non-patent literature of the PCT minimum documentation, has ceased all commercial sales of products and ACS services to Russian research organizations and aligns its activities with the US sanctions towards the Russian Federation as a whole, and informed Ukrpatent about providing free access to its resource in 2022. ACS will also provide free access to ACS journals to Ukrainian researchers throughout 2022 via Research4Life project.

Clarivate Analytics (UK) providing Ukrpatent with access to the Derwent World Patent Index Database (DWPI) through the EPOQUE Nets system has announced the closure of its office in Russia and has made the decision to cease commercial activity there and is currently considering the possibility of ensuring continuous access of Ukrpatent to the resource. The company is working continuously to understand the needs of Ukrainian users to provide support during this incredibly difficult time.
 

In the first quarter of 2022, Ukrpatent received 3597 applications for industrial property objects through the electronic filing system (61,1% of the total number of applications): 205 for inventions, 114 for utility models, 142 for industrial designs, 3136 for trademarks.
