IPKat co-author Jeremy has drafted an article on the provision under the Patents Act 2004 that enables people to seek non-binding opinions from the Comptroller (pronounced "Controller") of Patents as to the validity of a patent and as to patent infringement. If anyone would like to read this draft before it goes for publication, just click here. All comments received will be welcome, however critical.

The current Comptroller, Ron Marchant

Another Controller whose opinions are greatly valued, Sir Topham Hat

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
