Cabinet approves bill to partially revise the Patent Law

On March 2, 2021, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan announced that the bill to partially revise the Patent Law, etc. was approved by the Cabinet of the Japanese government.
A part of the outline of the bill is as follows.

(1) Establishment of procedures such as digitization in response to the spread of new coronavirus
• For oral proceedings of an appeal case, it will be possible, at the discretion of an appeal examiner in chief, for parties involved etc. to carry out the procedures using a web conference system without attending an appeal court.
• For payment of patent fee etc., it will be possible to make advance payment via direct deposit (abolition of prepaid stamp), make payment via credit card at the counter etc.

(2) Reconsideration of protection of rights in response to changes in corporate behavior due to progress in digitalization, etc.
• In response to the increase in number of imports of counterfeit products for personal use, the act of overseas merchants bringing counterfeit products into Japan via mail or other delivery system will be positioned as an infringement of trademark rights etc.

(3)Strengthening the foundation of the intellectual property system
• In order to balance revenues and expenditures in response to increased burdens in examination and digitization in procedures, the fee system of patent fee etc. will be reconsidered.
