Time flies, three intense weeks of theoretical training went by very quickly. We have had the opportunity to learn more about trademarks, infringement and opposition. Analyzing claims from a different perspective – as when to file an opposition – was a very enlightening task. Arguing why a claim should not be valid instead of the opposite differed from what we were used to, and we made some mistakes apparently. We have had training sessions for claim and application drafting where we had many great and intriguing discussions with feedback from our tutors. A short visit to Copenhagen and the office there was very enjoyable, where we amongst other things learnt that Awapatent wrote Danish patent number 38 for Rudolf Diesel on the diesel engine. It became apparent to me that our business both has a long history and is at the cutting edge of technology.
By now all the trainees are back at their home offices; after the three weeks of theoretical training it is exciting to be back and try to apply everything we have learnt.
