Dissemination Activities

  • The INPIT is responsible for preparing the Patent Abstracts of Japan (PAJ) in English, which provides English abstracts and the legal status information of published unexamined patent applications filed to the JPO. PAJ is issued monthly and distributed worldwide. Due to the translation work involved, there is a time delay (of about four months) between the date of the publication of an unexamined patent application in Japanese and the date of publication of the corresponding PAJ.
  • The INPIT stores the examination records and legal status (e.g., granted, refused, registered, appeal/trial records at the JPO) provided by the JPO, and provides them in standardized XML format for distribution to the public at a sales price equivalent to the marginal costs.
