A few words from the editor

A few words from the editor If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. - Issac NewtonIf you want your views to be known, we now open this monthly review to columnists, bloggers and IP practitioners. Send us an email at info@d-publish.com and lets discuss how we can work together. We also accept advertorial and advertisement placements.Structure of this review IPC Catchword Index is an alphabetical sorted list of catchwords of the IPC appeared in the review.

The Table of Contents is created based on alphabetical order of IPC. The patent applications are also sorted by alphabetical order of IPC. A brief How to use this review? description of each IPC is shown. We nd that the IPC description could help deciphering the abstract of an For creativity stimulation purpose: patent application.
