My aim was to get an understanding of the difference of a "normal" and a software patent and I think the course covered that excellently.

Siim Kinnas, Intellectual Property Advisor, Estonian Business and Innovation Agency

it was a good mixture of different aspects of this rather complex issue

Paul Barbic, , Treibacher Industrie AG

An in depth introduction to EPO filing and and over view of patent filings by PCT...I really enjoyed that she was able to provide popular examples so that we could make sense of the concepts being shared

Lucero Ricord, Attorney, Estudio Benedetti

It was very professional, the content being just right and not overwhelming for newbies to this field, like me. I enjoyed the presentation and JoAnna did a sterling job in presenting it.

Melane Wilke, Patent Administrator,

It was excellent and more than I expected.

Taemin Kang, patent attorney trainee, NLO

Well presented webinar. Good content and knowledgeable speaker.

Lisa Bates, Office Manager, FRKelly

Really good.

Océane Marchal, , Vesuvius Group SA

Really good, learnt a lot!!

Diptanil Debbarma, Trainee Patent Attorney, NLO

I liked how clear and simple a sometimes difficult and convoluted process was structured and presented. Highly recommended.

Siim Kinnas, Intellectual Property Advisor, Estonian Business and Innovation Agency

Given my very poor experience in this topic, I actually did not know upfront what to expect. JoAnne immediately made me feel at ease, she is very friendly, very much experienced and really pleasant to listen to.
