Programme Highlights

As companies are heavily using patents to protect and leverage their intellectual properties, it is important for engineers to understand others' patents and improve own's patent protection scope.  However, many are deterred by the complexity of patent documents.  Kenneth will share his experience in how to demystify US and China patent documents.   By the end of the seminar, Kenneth hopes that the audience will agree that reading a patent document is no longer a daunting task.  He will use the patent portfolio of Razer (雷蛇) (HKEx stock code:1337) from USPTO,, as examples. No prior patent experience is required.  The seminar will be conducted in Cantonese with occasional use of English.
