    A few words from the editor

    If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

    - Issac Newton

    If you want your views to be known, we now open this monthly review to columnists, bloggersand IP practitioners. Send us an email at info@d-publish.com and lets discuss how we canwork together. We also accept advertorial and advertisement placements.

    Structure of this review

    The Table of Contents is created based onalphabetical order of IPC. The patent applicationsare also sorted by alphabetical order of IPC. A briefdescription of each IPC is shown. We find that the IPCdescription could help deciphering the abstract of anpatent application. If a patent application belongs tomultiple IPC, the patent application will only be shownunder the section of first IPC.

    For each patent application, the following informationwill be shown:

    1. App. No. patent application no. it is uniqueto each patent application.

    2. Assignee this is owner of the patentapplication. If there is no assignee beingspecified, either the inventor of the patentapplication own the patent application or theowner of the patent application did not recordsuch information when the patent applicationwas filed.

    3. Title this is the title of the patent application.

    4. Abstract this is the abstract of the patentapplication. There are rules on how an abstractshould be drafted. Most patent attorneys like tohave the abstract based on the first claim of thepatent application.

    5. Pri. Date priority date it is the dateof filing of the first application of the patentapplication (a patent application could havemultiple application dates because of divisionalpatents as well as overseas patent applications).It is considered to be the effective date of filingfor the examination of novelty and inventivestep or non-obviousness for the subsequent

    application claiming the priority of the firstapplication.

    6. App. Date application date it is the date offiling of the patent application at the US.

    7. Pub. Date publishing date it is the date of thepatent application published by US. Usually, it isabout 18 months after the application date.

    Patent Index is a numerical sorted list the patentapplications appeared in the review.

    IPC Catchword Index is an alphabetical sorted list ofcatchwords of the IPC appeared in the review.

    How to use this review?

    For creativity stimulation purpose:

    quickly flip the pages and write down the pagenumber of the diagrams that interests you forlater review.

    look up the IPC Catchword Index and go to theIPC that you are interested

    For business intelligent purpose:

    quickly flip the pages and identify the IPC thatcould ring a bell

    study all patent applications belong to theidentified IPC.

    For engineering design purpose:

    quickly flip the pages and identify the diagramsthat may be similar to your work.

    click on the patent application link and visit theUS server for more detailed information of thepatent application.

    read the description of IPC carefully.

    if you are interested in IPC, compare the patentapplications belong to it.
