How to become a patent attorney in Hong Kong

From Day One, this is a personal view blog, so I share my personal experience.

First, I need to say a few words about not writing for a long long time. When you are busy, you stop for a few weeks, then it extends to a few months. I wanted to pick up again, then I forgot the password. Now that is a push with two comments. So I am back.

There is no such thing as patent attorney in Hong Kong. As there is no independent patent examination in Hong Kong, there is no need for this profession.

Typically a lawyer may take this up as one of the area of practice. There is no formal requirement who can and connot take up patent work.

There is a Asia Patent Attorney Association - Hong Kong Group. Being a member is as close as being a patent attorney in Hong Kong. To become a member, you need a few years experience in patent drafting and execution, and referral from a few members.

Without a membership, if you know what you are doing, and have trust from your clients, and do produce good result, then you can call yourself whatever you like. This is a unregulated profession.

As said in my original post, there is not a formal requirement for whom can be a patent attorney in Hong Kong. There is no examination or qualification requirement for any one who cares to do business as a patent attorney.

I will talk to you M off the blog.

Someone deleted a variety of links from gotupload and rapidshare ...

From now, we will use www.tinyurlalternative.com as our main [url=http://www.tinyurlalternative.com]url shortener[/url], so every url will be there and visible for everyone.

You can pick out from several great [url=http://kfc.ms]short url[/url] address like:

They have over 60 other available domains and the [url=http://myurlshortener.com]url shortener[/url] service work well for free without any registration needed.

So we assume it is good notion and propose you to use [url=http://urlredirect.info]url redirect[/url] service too!

I have just been given a patent trainee position and wonder my given salary is reasonable; is there any source of salary figure available?

Besides, how's its market (for china and hong kong) in five years time and how do I further make progress of this career?

It would be grateful if your reply can reach email: ready.to.auction@gmail.com
