How to start patenting your idea

If you have started your engineering study, it is nature that many new ideas will flow through your mind. Like some children in childhood itself do lot of such creativity and ideas by using whatever the objects and toys they get in the hand.

Many engineering and technology solution companies are very good in R& D. But they fail to create or convert that research into an asset. Namely an IP asset.

Yes, a movable and unaccounted asset called Intellectual priperty.

As one of the American scholar, a Patent Attorney in USPTO said to the Indian Audience, to grow business in the country, create a business culture first.

Without such a culture nothing is going to work out in reality. Free industrial policies, free mentorship, removing unwanted documentation procedures, technology assistance, finance, creating markets and quick approvals are the need of the hour, a word “Super Power” will have to be in practical not just oral.

Exactly, even the large companies like top 500 in India hardly have any technology assistance from the government, providing subsidies to Patentable technologies and systems or not even a liberal or full fledged IP administrative and legislative departments.

Hardly do they have targets to add number of patents to their name as an Inventor or to the nation’s property.

Many top companies in India spend lot in R & D but hardly created an atmosphere to internal IP counsel and Corpus of Intellectual Property assets.

Well, why only companies, even individuals with research knowledge hardly have any attitude or an idea about patent and power of patents

Except, few institutes like IIT and few other engineering colleges, students and scholars hardly have a system, or a one stop window to leverage the intellectual knowledge into intellectual property, adding value to the knowledge as Inventors

Ok, but where and how do we start this culture?

Students, researchers, scholars, engineers and companies need to target at least one patent in their title, own name

It is not easy, as there are many many millions of patents already patented worldwide, it is a guess that hardly any idea is left over. But, Not a problem, every new patent is just one new step of the existing patent, we call it as prior art.

So, millions of such patents do really have potential to add any more million of patents, patents of design, system and process.

Read patents databases like USPTO, EP, Indian Patent Office to read existing patents on your subject.

Find an advanced and alternative concepts with new claims to own your new patent.

The Idea shall be novel, prior art, non obvious and usefulness.

You must start with local parent office and then also register your patent with other important countries, where you find there will be potential for your patent.

To start, you need few basic information in a standard format, the IP office call it Invention Disclosure Form.

Once you start creating this document on your idea, you will get a clear picture of what is your idea is and is it patentable!!!

Please answer to these questions, you shall soon become a patent owner.

You wont really know, it is not going to surprise you that the patent you own will or can one day fetch millions of money appreciation, if not worth zero value too!

For patent filing, patent litigation, technology opinion, prior art search, claim drafting, you may write for guidance on such services lpo@pgnwissen.com 8939577537

Invention Disclosure form
1) Full name, address, and Telephone number if each person who conceived the invention

iPhone duplicate glass replacements, multiple times

iphone 4 broken LCDI have been using the US non-contract, carrier locked at&t iphone purchased at 780 USD was working fine till 2104. As blogged earlier I did a official unlock of my iPhone at OfficiialiPhoneunlock.co.uk. Since then, had no problems in updating OS. iTunes Sync. In span of 3 years, this iPhone fell on the floor at least dozen times from 5 ft height and on rough the cement floor, rolled multiple times, luckily it never broke. Except, there was a crack on the back glass panel. In February 2014, it fell down from my bed from about 1 ft height,  LCD facing the tile floor Simpolo make tiles. Damaaarrrrr…front glass broken. My heart broken. :(.

I have been using this iPhone nude, gives more pleasure and comfort than using back covers and bumpers.But, now only i understood,  not using protective iPhone cases can break your heart. I was still using the broken iPhone for 4 weeks tape applied. I approached few apple service centers in Chennai, but they refused to service the broken glass as this phone was purchased in US. I had no option to replace with duplicate  glass, since there are no original quality iPhone LCD assembly available in India, in Chennai, I decided to visit rich street in Chennai.

My day was bad, I saw service centre called Bismi Mobile service in the Richy street, though the guys sounded like expert, they said replacement including LCD assembly, back cover, home button would cost INR2400. But, I was made a scape goat, my iPhone got into the wrong hands. These idiots took 5 hours to repair my iPhone, it seemed they had some problem with LCD assemblies. Atlast, the LCD assembly supplier came and gave the new one, somehow they fixed the LCD. But, the phone was not reassembled properly. idiot service engineers did not even put the mother board screws, battery connector screw, the plastic cover above audio connectors was not put. When I came to house, there was no audio and found the iPhone was not screwed. I got so frustrated and dissatisfied with the service engineer idiot..rafiq.

I thought it is no more good to take the phone to Rich street, I ordered for a new screw set also a new back panel, new one broke the next days itself. After a week of use, I was holding the iPhone 4 in tight jeans pant. When I was trying to board into my car, I heard a patak sound…ha ha..I realized iPhone LCD new assembly again broken. I ordered another LCD assembly and replaced myself through ebay from Jalandhar.

The quality of duplicate iPhone LCD assemblies are so inferior quality that the 2nd LCD assembly also broke down within 1 week. When I enquired again about the original LCD assembly, no luck, however a shop name called Radio Vision name was referred in the Richi Street again.. Oh no… Ever take a phone to service at Richie street unless you know some friends, else you would be made a fool by like Bismi Phone service fellows, unethical and crooks.

When I visited Richie street the 2nd time, I visited those Bismi mobile Service fellows and used harsh words to tell about their unethical behavior and cursed them for such unqualified and unprofessional service standards.

3rd LCD assembly, I bought from Radio Vision, also I reported them the quality, they said, sir these LCD are duplicate qualities, it would break. I did ask about good service centers. Genuine comment they gave is no service engineer in Richie street is good to service the smart phones. I requested them to replace with their engineer, the quality was looking good, but the new problem evolved was that the Phone call proximity UV filter went missing, now display not getting when phone cal is on, leading to unexpected mute and loudspeaker buttons.

Ha ha, the 3rd LCD did not life even for 1 month, during summer vacation tour, when I wanted to get down from the car, I picked up the phone from pant pocket to avoid pressure on the glass, unfortunately, when I was getting down, my pant was struck on the door and all of sudden my Phone fell down from hand due to the jerk. Voila….3rd LCD made a huge sound.. of course huge comments from wife  and brother and mother.. irresponsible fellow. how many times you will break the iPhone. Immediately, I went to a nearby shop and applied a transparent Gum tape vertically. With same condition the iPhone is being used for 3 weeks now.

Though my iPhone 4 has problems like Power button not working, glass broken, proximity sensor not working, my iPhone still gives me better communication and satisfaction on the usage. Looking to buy a original LCD assembly and Power button strip, Proximity UV filter and service it self.

During these period, I had to buy one Nokia Asha 230 smart phone just costed around INR 3300 less then 60 USD. But real smart phone with dual SIM rich experience.  I am still holding this phone for a backup.

If you are really concerned about iPhone use protective cases include number covers, if at all broken try visiting genuine service centers avoid richie street, Prefer Original or replace the iPhone if  it has been used for at least 3 years. These smartphones life span seems to be 3 to 4 years.

Take care..unlike me.

 

Legal system in India a review

Ultimate authority and solution centre for a common man problem is the courts and the Judges. One  can call it as a  “Legal system”. But, does this system performing to the needs and demand? Is it fulfilling the natural justice? Do the judgments  are in time and when needed?  Does it have the  sufficient Infrastructure to the growing needs of the litigations and suits.?

I came across a law journal comments, which if you read across would raise your eyebrow, would naturally raise a question….how and when this legal system going to reshape, how and when the efficiency is going to improve. Actual statistics are worrying, which needs immediate attention and quick law reforms in the country.

Case 1:

Umakant sharma, Postman, he was charged for appropriating of an amount Rs 57 by a metropolitan magistrate in the year 1984. This case had 350 oral hearings, 30 years of suspension from service. After 29 years, he was acquitted. A sorrier side of Justice delivery system.

Case 2 :

Mahipat Bamgude’s case captures its trivialization. Mahipat Bamgude and his friend, Ghanshyam Bhosale, then aged 22 were travelling to a wedding, when a fellow passenger’s leg accidentally hit the complainant, Shankar Nivangune. This minor accident led to such heated arguments, that Shankar filed a complaint in 1982 against the two u/s 325 (voluntarily causing severe hurt) and 504 (intentional insult) read with S.34. The case remained forgotten until 2010, 29 years later, when it was listed for first hearing. By then, the complainant and all but one of the 13 witnesses had died.

If we look at the facts, our country needs more law graduates, quality practice, opportunities for Junior Advocates, more judges and courts…read below..why?

Facts :
– 250 seats are vacant out of 900 in various High Courts, means 30% of seats are vacant.
– In Tamilnadu alone 162 courts are unmanned.
– Only 15000 district and sub-divisional courts functioning against 18000 all over India
– Total number of pending cases have crossed 3 crores. 30 million cases.
– Out of which 4 million cases are pending in High Courts alone
– It is an approximate guess that, it would take 400 years to complete many pending cases. Specially the criminal appeals.
– Law commission recommended in 1987 that ratio of Indian Judges per population to be increased from current 11 Judges to 110 Judges per million.
– Which is far lagging compared to other developed countries. Australia 58/ Million, Canada 75/Million, UK 100/Million, USA 130/Million.

Common man too much dependance, no confidence in self and relationship, virtue
The other end, common man lost his virtue, eagerness and extra ordinary desires, money attitude leading to unnecessary filing up of cases for even small causes. Small causes can very well be settled between the party by themselves. All it needs a tolerance, forgiveness and amicable settlement with the help of elders and superior individuals in the community. Especially, like minor criminal and civil cases.

Bottlenecks cases in delivery system.

– Matrimonial cases
– Section 138, Negotiable Instruments cases. Cheque bouncing.
– Traffic Challan
– Motor Accident Claim
– Section 498A, Dowry and Domestic Women Violence Act
– Section 482 CrPC
– Civil Suits

Other strict systems which can improve the Judicial system in India

– Electronic filing and Case References
– Giving deadline and maximum number of adjournments else, dismiss the case.
– Control the time period of cases by Judges
– In Criminal cases, plea bargaining then full-fledged trial
– Judges given access to online journals
-Selective docket system like in the US in appraising the petitions, about the interpretation of the laws. Grant only if valid.
– Pre – screening in chambers.
– Judges and Advocates exhibit utmost integrity and Honesty. Both inside and outside courtroom

Legal Education:-

Natural justice says, every common man shall know what is law and can practice law for his own causes. But, there are many questions raised on the development of legal education and court practice, like seniority, caste system,  monopoly interests playing in the court practice, virtually not allowing the young graduates to practice law at ease, there are heavy barriers and channels,  blocking the liberty to error and learn. Influence of politics and Administrative powers are buying the postings.

Quiet interestingly there is  an another worrying factor happening in the legal education system, The Bar Council system hardly monitoring the development of legal education system, asking why in Tamilnadu there are many graduates enrolling in to the Bar, asking why they are completing their  law degrees from other States.  Discriminating  own standards and policies and by  Ignoring to take initiatives in implementing developing programmes for Junior Advocates.

Conclusion :-

Judicial system must evolve from lagging face to revolution face, don’t keep the door open for cases, open the door for completing the cases before coming trial. Uphold natural Justice. Faith in the legal system. Speedy delivery and Fundamental Rights.

I hope the new team with the supervision of Mr.Modi, will give a shape to the  legal and judicial process system to be in par with the developed international countries.

Satymeva Jayathe!  Satymeva Jayathe!  Satymeva Jayathe!  Truth alone Triumphs!

Srilanka, Human Rights, YHRI , Road to Rights,

Thanks note to SASYHR 2014

Ayubhuvan!

This article is about my Sri Lanka experience.

Few weeks back, I received an exclusive invitation to attend and speak as a international delegate  at South Asia Summit on Youth for Human Rights SASYHR 2014, organized by the Non-Profit Organization called The Road to Rights. Founder Mr.Ashan Perera, Senator at Youth Parliament. Ministry of Social Media, Ministry for Youth and National Youth Council have supported this event.

Youth for Human Rights International, and USA based Non-Profit organization headed by the Dr.Mary Shuttleworth, founder  and  Mr.Bruce Ferguson South Asia Co-Ordinator. The event was colored by Mr. Nishant, Ms. Stephanies, Actress Pooja UmaShankar and South Asia Ambassador Sheena Chauhan.

3 day event  was grandly opened with high profile speakers such as Dr Chris Nonis, UK Amabassador and Lalit Piyum Perera lighting the opening ceremony.

There were 100’s of youth volunteers who were energetic and actively co-ordinated the whole event.

This 3 day event was planned with 7 sessions. Firstly, on the 1st day, 1st session was on the topic Gender Equality.  For some reason, the panelist for the 1st session was not finalized and henceforth an open invitation was given to be panelist. I thought this is an excellent opportunity, so I said with all your permission, I am taking up the panelist position.

But for Instance, I was very blank on the topic, since no preparation was done and no subjects were referred. However, since there were 4 panelist, I took my turn to be 3rd and meanwhile I started pen down the important points of the topic.

When it comes to Gender Equality, there are many issues under this category, so I started taking few important points such as female foeticide and women reservation policy for the session, and elaborated the points with two way interactions.

1) The boy gender going to find it very difficult to find a bride if the female foeticide keeps continuing and ratio is imbalance.

2) Politicians talk so much about women reservation, but practically no representation given  for women. Women should come forward in jobs, politics and administration. Deserve 33%.

This session I have ended with a note that, though the women deserve equal right to men, don’t misuse that equal right by wrongly comparing with the cruel attitude of some men.

Also submitted one of my Facebook post. ““Women is a special character, mother of hospitality, gentleness and softness. Never get to match yourself with the men character and never be at a wrong place at wrong time.”

An audience raised a question during QA time. He asked… why no religion never ever talk about gender equality.

  • So I categorically concluded, this is an issue of every individual and it is a unwritten constitution to respect women. As well, it would be better, if this question can be raised in the World Religious Conference, if any amendments can be made. :)

Secondly, I found very interesting topics were discussed on ICT, Internet Communication Technology, using ICT how can we do the uplifting of the needed one and uphold the human rights, yet another interesting topic was press media. The debates were very thoughtful.

Thirdly, on day 3 of the event, international delegates were given slots to represent their country and topics. So it started first with me India. I was the first one to take up the podium and presented my ppt on UDHR articles 25, 26, 29

26. The Right to Education. Ensure you and all in your family are EDCUATED

UDHR Article 26 , Constitution of Sri Lanka, Chapter VI, Article 27, (2) (h)

Education is a right. Primary school should be free. Our parents can choose what we learn. (h) the complete eradication of illiteracy and the assurance to all persons of the right to universal and equal access to education at all levels.

25. Food and Shelter for All. Protect your Environment
UDHR Article 25 , Constitution of Sri Lanka, Chapter VI, Article 27, (2) (c)

We all have the right to a good life. Mothers and children, people who are old, unemployed or disabled, and all people have the right to be cared for. (c) the realization by all citizens of an adequate standard of living for themselves and their families, including adequate food, clothing and housing, the continuous improvement of living conditions and the full enjoyment of leisure and social and cultural opportunities ;

29. Responsibility/Duty You are responsible for your Country and you UDHR Article 29, Constitution of Sri Lanka, Article 28, Fundamental Duty

We have a duty to other people, and we should protect their rights and freedoms.

End of the presentation introduced about my initiative about the Saraswathi Foundation for Promoting Education and Environment.  Sarasedentrust.org

In thanks note, I had no other option except to call Mr.Ashan Perera to the stage and requested a big applaud for the initiative.Then I had keynote speech to the Audience and the Administrators, which I made the earlier night.

The speech goes as follows

__________

Dear Sinhalese, Tamils,  Muslims, Burghers, Moors, Malay &  Veddah’s

South Asia Summit on Youth and Human Rights have come to the final day along with World Educational Tour for Peace 2014. This day is going to be a day written in the history of Mother Sri Lanka.

The Road to Rights, youth led movement  headed by Mr.Ashan Perera, The Senator member of the National Youth Parliament and  his concept of creating awareness programme to the public on human rights is going to have very positive  impact on the development of Sri  Lanka.

Every youth of this nation have a courtesy to thank the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Skill Development, Ministry of Mass Media and Information and National Youth Services Council for their support and supervising this summit.

Likewise, in my country India the disputed Kashmir, like Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria  the conflict of interest has taken a override on peace and a safari ride on the violation of fundamental rights of the common man.

This nation, after ending 3 decades of war, now transforming into the stage of reconciliation and development.  However, reconciliation and development  would be a challenging factor to the State and the Administrators. Primarily because the fundamental rights such as equality, education, health, economy and sustainability, which are to be addressed by each and every citizen of this beautiful nation.

As Dr.Chris Noni said in the opening ceremony, you the youth, the brand ambassadors of the nation,  have a duty to open your mind to inquiry, embrace the change, come out of subjugation,  come out of autocracy, agony, apartheid  and apply equanimity to reap the dividend of peace and uphold the  sovereignty of human values, open your heart to each other and respect to each other irrespective of color creed, ethnicity, religion and rich.

Unity in diversity is a prosperity, peace bonded with economical, social and political rights are the roads for the rights, of course a genuine way to the fundamental rights.

In this juncture,  let us all take the inspirations from the leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, C.W.W. Kannangara (Father of free education of Sri Lanka), Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, Dr. Ambedkar & Nelson Mandela and follow their paths  towards the humanity and peace.

As a  citizen of this developing nation, you the vibrant, energetic, responsible youth, you  hold a complete responsibility in contributing to the development of the nation. To become a developed nation and peace prevailing country, requires a Continued education filled with social ethics and moral values , increasing the agriculture production, technology development, intellectual property assets,  establishment of local industries, strong manufacturing base,  self and sustainable development .

“My dear youngsters! youths of this nation, youths representing the villages and cities; Please note that every bad habit and immoral personal activity that you do in public is witnessed by the children’s and kids of our community, like consuming liquor in public, smoking cigarettes, public nuisance and gambling. Don’t  set yourself as an example of a bad role model and a bad society”

I register my heartiest thanks to Mr.Ashan Perera, Dr Mary Shuttleworth, Dr. Bruce Ferguson, Sheena Chohan, Jinnie, Toven, Tushant, Stephanie, Pooja, Hansaka, Dumi,  my co-delegates from India, International delegates, Local delegates,  each and every volunteer, food &  transport providers, Sri Lankan Airways for the ever remarkable smile and all kind of support provided in your Mother Sri Lanka.

At the outset,  I wish the outcome of this event will  give extracts to the forthcoming World Youth Conference 2014, Mainstreaming Youth in the post-2015 Development agenda.

Though I took excess time than allotted, I wanted to deliver what I wanted to convey.

Later Afghanistan team made a wonderful presentation, they did a good homework and they were very positive in creating a very positive image of Afghanistan. They had Apple products and technology geeks. Ha ha, however, me Indian had to help them in setting my laptop to run the presentation and audio connection with my Dell Studio 17″ . But from my heart I appreciate Afghanistan for binded brand building presentation. Wish to visit Afghanistan.

Next 2 days, we had a train Travel to Kandy Province and did 4 hour sightseeing and returned back to Colombo. Did some shopping. We were given a free accommodation to MoonSoon Suites, where we were given a serviced apartment.

General Highlights of Sri Lanka

– Colombo is like Singapore, small and beautiful Country

– Sri Lanka Rupee value is half of Indian Rupee. 1INR = 2 SR

– People are tourist friendly.

– Cost of goods and food is expensive in Colombo, it is cheaper as we get out of Colombo.

– Motor vehicles are costly, at least 3 times costlier than India, including bikes and scooters.

– Sri Lankan youth are not much aware about India, same like Indian’s have no much idea about Srilanka

– Sri Lanka is not a manufacturing based country, they don’t produce much. Industries are lagging.

– Sri Lankan youth speak very good English.

Raja Sir 71, Tree plantation event

mango plants

mango plants

It was a great opportunity paying back to the music. Yes, music of isaignani illayaraja’s  is always a medicine. His music heals the heart and mind.  His music is a best companion when alone, drive and travel.

On June 2nd falls Raja sir’s birthday. 2014 is 71st birthday.  As a thanksgiving to his music, I have sponsored and organized a tree plantation event at my village government elementary school.  The event went on successfully and demand for fruit tree’s went up all through villagers.

Week back, my friend  Mr.Harikrishnan forwarded me an email about the 71st birthday of illayaraja sir and a project run by isaignanifanclub.com, an official fan club of illayaraja, managed by his daughter and his long time music lovers.

A project of planting 71001 trees across Tamilnadu.  I found this initiative is interesting, so I traced the contacts for Vellore District. I found Mr.Babu and confirmed my interest to involve in the initiative. But, I had no clue what is what and how this is going to take place. I was determined to use this chance to promote the environment and  use the support of my mother’s, Saraswathi Foundation for promoting and environment Sarasedentrust.org

Vellore District co-ordinator confirmed me that he will organize the trees  in whatever the quantity I need. However, transporting it is going to cost me a lot since my village and Vellore City is almost 70 KM away. The other concern was that, what type of tree plants I would get and how this is going to attract the children and retain the interest of nurturing.

So, I concluded that tree plants should be fruit yielding one, hence I started searching through many friends and contacts to avail the fruit tree plants. Found no garden nursery was nearby. I walked and called many forest range offices in Vellore and Tiruvellore districts to find about the tree plants. Nowhere, I got a positive response on tree plants, specially the fruit yielding. Lost few days, I had only 24 hours, at last got a contact to garden nursery based in Chengalpatu, Orchid tree. The owner lady said each plant will cost Rs.30, but transporting to be taken care. Since this place further far than Vellore City, it is going to cost more. Around 130 KM. from village. At last my neighbor Mr.Eswaran, gave me a lead one through one Mr.Meganathan, he suggested me to buy plants from a village located in Andhra Pradesh, near Tamilnadu border.

On June 2nd morning, myself and my daughter who was on summer vacation started a 80 KM drive to reach Andhra Pradesh(Seema Andhra). Ont he way we found the  stretch between Tiruvellore Town and Uttuottai town is growing very faster, my daughter witnessed many forest range offices and a Poondi lake.

Finally, we approached the seller, the seller quoted each plant Rs60. Normal rate of each plant is around Rs.100+. I tried convincing about donation to children etc, etc. However, he said he can offer Rs.30. Each plant, justified that nurturing involves lot of cost and maintenance of pouring water everyday.

So finally purchased around 50 @ INR 30 and requested them to give extra 10 plants as gift. We got it. By the time me and my daughter reached it was around 11 A.M. My another important tasks were to confirm the children, chief guest and important logistic of banners.

Ha ha, I found the digital banner industry is so busy in Tamilnadu, youth are already fell victim of banner culture, printing banners for every reason and flooding the designers and delivery schedules. In my case, it was a essential that banners mentioning the event name was must. A condition of isaignanifanclub. Even otherwise, an event needs a backdrop with event name and sponsorship etc. A way to record the events. Luckily, I went with already self designed banners in psd format.  So it took just an hour and Rs.200 for two banners of 5ft X 2ft size, Rs 10/sq ft. But it was quick printed fitted highlights.

The past few weeks weather is so hot that, human body starts burning everywhere, could not tolerate the heat at the mid of the afternoon. Initially program was planned at 2.30, based on the hot weather, I pushed to 3.30 PM. As planned mango tree plants , banners,  chocolates, chief guests and children were ready. The programme went on well, every children was happy to receive the plants, specially after I said, this is a special variety of Banganapalli mango trees.

I am sure, most of them would be nurturing that everyday and looking forward quick harvesting and a shadow at the backyard of the house.

I too feel this is just a initiative to impress the cute minds and create a concern on environment. Thanks to Saraswathi Foundation of the money contribution and for the moral support of isaignanifanclub.com Mr.Babu. Vellore District.  iPhone and Asha 230 photo clicks by Vishal and Shailesh.

Note: Any government/private school or colleges in Tamilnadu, NCC, Scout programs require any events supporting environment, planting shadow giving trees or a fruit yielding trees. please let us know. we will provide logistic and execute the event. Ultimately, seed some effort to manage the global warming and hot weather.

Total cost of the event was INR was 2850.

1500 Plants
1000 for Fuel
200 Banner print
150 Chocolates.

Why India shall develop the culture of business environment as the Silicon valley, namely the United States of America?

There are different economies, some are innovative, productive, consuming or service oriented. India may be rated as best economy as a consuming market and service oriented.

Innovation may be a rare dream for Indian entrepreneurs, because there is no climate for motivating & rewarding business culture here. If we look at the core of this culture, the reason can fall on the lack of entrepreneurs coming out of top rated business and techie schools. IIT’ians  & IIM  never come out of campus with a purpose for creating a culture, rather everyone are ending up with Top MNC’s with a package, that flashes on a news paper headlines. 

The worlds top technology companies have hired such top rated graduates from top Indian Institutions and using their knowledge for creation of inventions and taking ownership of the Patents. i.e. Intellectual Property ownership. This is a bad light for the Indian Business environment and innovation opportunity.

Recently, an experienced patent attorney from USA, Mr.Howard B Miller categorically suggested to the Indian Patent Attorneys & Technology heads that India is in need of creating a culture, that may provide opportunity to new comers for opening up business, finding innovations & inventing patents.

He may have indirectly referenced the American companies, those who are ruling the world with innovative technologies and products. 

Personally, I think about 3 important issues, the Indian business culture should consider.

1) Present Indian entrepreneurs should  create innovation in products, file up intellectual properties by way of inventions and copyrights.(I think the top-most Indian companies not anywhere near to a small technology innovation company from the US or Chinese market, attributable to the lack of innovation, invention, IP system, IP department and intellectual properties assets are not created)

2)  Government of India and Commerce ministry, should provide a climate & promote the habit of patenting the innovation and inventions of every industry as patent right, to leverage the invention and innovation and ripe the full potential in the world market.

3)  The so called, techie brains coming out of IIT’s & IIM’s should setup own companies in India.   Create a culture OF innovation, inventions & environment to more entrepreneuers.

Some Extract point from GlobalIP Convention 2014

As a Patent Analyst & Patent Attorney, I have attended the Global IP Convention that was held at Hyderabad. It was a good opportunity to meet clients and other industry professionals from worldwide.

Three day convention had more than 50 sessions from experts. Me having a habit of taking notes, I thought to share the extract keywords. Hence, pasting it here as bullets. You have any doubts to specific keyword, you may write to Lpo@pgnwissen.com

தமிழ் என்றாலே தகராறு

தமிழ் என்றாலே தகராறு என்னும் பழமொழி என்னுடைய மகளின் 3-ஆம் வகுப்பு மதிப்பெண் பட்டியலில் இருந்து தெரிகிறது. காரணங்களை அலசியபோது,
1) பாடப் புத்தகத்தின் தொகுப்பு அளவுக்கு அதிகமாக உள்ளதும்.
2) இரண்டாம் மொழியாக (SECOND LANGUAGE) பயிலும் மாணவர்களுக்கு, முதல் மொழியாக பயிலும் அதே தமிழ் புத்தகத்தை படிக்க சொல்வதும்.
3) தேர்வு வினாக்கள் பாடப் புத்தகத்தில் இடம் பெராதவையாக இருப்பதும்.
4) கடினமான இலக்கணங்கள் 3 ஆம் வகுப்பிலேயே கேட்டிருப்பதும்.
5)10 ஆம் வகுப்பு வரை தமிழ் மொழியை முதல் மொழியாக கொண்டு படித்த எனக்கே 3 ஆம் வகுப்பு இலக்கணம் புரியவில்லை என்பதும்.
6) 100 மாணவர்களுக்கு வெறும் 15 மாணவர்களே தமிழ் மொழியை இரண்டாம் மொழியாக பயில்வதும்.
7)நடைமுறையில் பேசும் தமிழும், புத்தகத்தில் பயிலும் தமிழும் முற்றிலும் வித்தியாசமாக இருப்பது, என அடுக்கிக் கொண்டே போகிறது….தமிழ் தேர்வு என்றாலே அழ ஆரம்பித்து விடும் மகளை பார்க்கும்பொழுது, ஏன் ஹிந்தி மொழியை மகளுக்கு பரிந்துரை செய்யவில்லை என்பது வருத்தமாக இருக்கிறது… முயற்சி செய்து நன்றாக படி மகளே என்று சொல்வதை தவிர வேரு ஒன்றும் எனக்கு தோன்றவில்லை.

Patents search services crowdsourcing

For few years now, I had successfully done hundreds of patent prior art and patent invalidity searches. Most of these searches were with the US and Japan clients. Recently, I got to know about the 3rd party crowd sourcing platform models, those providing efficient patent search solutions. Example, Article One Partners and Patexia are some of those,  providing very successful medium for the innovation companies and patents owners, enabling them to avail the patent search services at a fixed price, with the pool of efficient researchers.

Past few months, I have done half a dozen patent studies on these crowd sourcing platforms. Though all of my studies were ranked above 80%, but efforts went waste, because hundreds of hours hard work effort went off with no monetary benefits, like a lottery ticket. 

Though it is a very good experience to work on such studies, I feel that the transparency system of such platforms are questionable. Hence, I thought of sharing my personal experience via this post. 

Well, working on a technical subject is always an interest to me, but quite naturally, it is a very stressful job, mainly due to the long hours before the computer monitor, which heats up the brain quickly.  A patent study, a patent reading of full text,  drawing reference and PDF doc view requires an hour to read 50+ patent documents. So, the list of 5000+ patents can take anywhere between 100+ hours , say about a week or 10 working days, depending on the subject and technical depth. Normally, a patent analyst charge varies from minimum 20 USD to maximum 100 USD per hour, proportionate to the subject and experience. It also differs by the type of search and intelligence analysis.

 

Though such crowd sourcing platform is a good model, free to participate policies attracts many efficient patent professionals, It may be one sided opportunity for the analysts and  a great opportunity for the patent owners, who use these platforms in brining out more participants and closing  the patent study with efficient results.

However, level of transparency followed by these crowd sourcing companies is questionable? Virtually, killing thousands of hours of intellectual brains & resource hours. Yes, it may be a lucky draw for the winning contestant, but other 100+ participants may end up with nothing, may be the study results could be having just 1% difference to the winner. Yes, even if it such model and concept, there shall be some remedies for searchers in not wasting duplicate time.

So my question here is that…. is there a lack of transparency in the number of submissions, the report of winning studies and the legitimacy of actual winners?

 

Platform allows to submit duplicate patents

As the contest or a project study of patent is announced, many searchers starts submitting the relevant patents, while they submit the patents, there is a possibility that many other researchers may submit the same patent, as all many users would be using the same of the kind of database sources & tools.

When submission is being done, the platform should allow or restrict or even to publish the list of patents already submitted as and when submitted, to inform the other searchers, about already submitted patents.  So, such information can save thousands of hours of the searchers, the time management and efficiency can be utilized on other patent studies.

 

Platform does not disclose the winning studies

Same like, when the contest winner is announced, it would be a transparent model, if the winning patent is disclosed to the other participants, also legitimacy of patent winners, real photograph and real profile. These factors, gives me a second thought in spending valuable hours as lucky draw.

Other side, studies listed on those platforms becomes open to public, can also result in breaking of IP secrecy, as well publicize  the motives of the study and the trend, at the cost of the searchers!!!. 

Southern states are going the king in deciding the lok sabha elections 2014

The political system in India is getting to an unpredictable attitudes; one cannot be sure of which leader would jump when to which political party and which party is going to alliance with whom. What would be their terms and contract before and after the elections.

Buying MLA’s and MP’S has become a ignorance of the political system, ultimately fooling the public/voters. Candidate contest elections with a X party, they propaganda the policy and agendas of the X party, while so contesting. But, after they win they simply change the party to Y, virtually cheating the voters. This kind of political system needs a serious review.

Electoral reform in India needs a serious review, firstly, on the pre-alliance and post alliance of parties, restrict the parties in changing the side after elections, Secondly, do not allow the won candidate to change the party after the election, finally to streamline the political party system to a two party based national political system specially for parliament elections. This would bring in the real revolution of public administration and improvement of the country.

Coming to the prediction of lok sabha 2014 elections, my heart goes with the BJP and Narendra Modi for the Prime minister candidate, however, like the last lok sabha election 2009, the over confident BJP, who missed the race by missing out the mathematics. Congress was very clever and they hit the right at the bottom of the real voters by alliance with political parties very calculative. Congress did a good mathematics for the 2nd consecutive time.

Loka sabha elections 2014 though look very favorable to BJP, the state political parties will play a major role in forming the government. Specially, the southern states Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu and Kerala regional political parties will play a major role in deciding and forming the next government. Unless BJP puts ground effort in educating every voter to vote for the national political party BJP, the time will be tough.

Now, the country should vote for a single party majority, in order to expect the real powers of legislatures and prime minister, unlike the handicapped NDA and UPA alliances, who can never take independent decisions.

Though the probable wining parties of southern states are in the mood of supporting BJP’s PM candidate Modi, the pre & post election alliance will be the sole deciding factor in forming the  next government and the prime minister.
