Peer to Patent Japan (P2PJ)

   Peer to Patent (P2P) harnesses citizen-experts (reviewers) in a collaborative manner to help Patent Office identify prior art relevant to pending patent applications. P2P has been globally recognized for the last few years as listed below. Now, Institute of Intellectual Property (IIP) is pleased to announce IIP will launch Peer to Patent Japan (P2PJ) in the beginning of 2011.
