Supporting patent applications requires complex processes, whether invention is determined by application date (as in most jurisdictions) or invention date (as in the U.S.). Accurate and legally defensible records of the exact nature, components, and inventors of each invention are required. In the past, signed and dated paper records and secure microfilm images were sufficient, but now electronic equivalents that use digital signatures or external electronic notarization are used. The defense of Intellectual Property by purely electronic means is often supplemented by printing or microfilming key records. OpenText’s solutions make it easy to manage government IP processes.
