Watch our webinar: To record or not to record, that's the question

question mark drawn on window


On 19 January 2021, we gathered Novagraaf experts to share recordals best practices. The recording of the session is available below.

What do patent assignments, company mergers and the relocation of patent owners have in common? They must all be recorded before the national patent offices, so that all information regarding the applicant or the owner of a patent is updated and enforceable against third parties.

Such recordal can be complex and a mistake could have serious consequences on the ownership of a patent.

In our 19 January webinar, hosted by Lexology, we shed light on this little-known, but nonetheless important, procedure and answer questions such as:

  • What should be recorded?
  • Why should it be recorded?
  • When should a change be recorded?
  • How can difficulties that might occur be overcome (with the help of IP counsel)?
