Here are the don’t’s: Don’t ask your boss if you know only the location, the date and the networking programme. Don’t ask your boss if you do not know who will exhibit there.…
Tools for Intelligence
This is the final alert for the Information Tools for Patents and IP two-day meeting in Singapore in one month's time. This meeting is attracting the cream of IP and patent professionals in Singapore and surrounding countries, as well as some of the principal suppliers of IP data and intelligence tools for data retrieval and analysis, in the world.…
One of the most economically important reasons for patent searching is to help invalidate patents. In recent years crowdsourcing platforms such as Article One, BluePatent and Patexia run competitiors in which prior art searchers compete to find the best prior art to patents and inventions in return for prizes. Prizes on offer have ranged up to $50,000 or higher, but the prizes on offer by Article One at the date of this blog were US$4500, while Patexia were offering $5000 prizes.…

    Hi, Tom.

    Thanks for initiating this PIUG wiki. It looks like a very good start!

    I am testing the functionality of adding a comment here to see where it will show up. It seems that if comments sent by individuals are displayed on the same pages as these links to the knowledge databases, they may "clutter" the resources. I would prefer that the comments are sent and stored separately from the "official" pages of the wiki where the actual "knowledge gold nuggets" are stored.

    Thanks.

    Cynthia: 

    The issue is that we generally don't have "official" pages in the wiki that we would restrict either for writing or addition comments. Perhaps the front pages of each wikispace and a few others would be managed only by the administrators. However, to do that to very many pages would run counter to the community nature of the wiki which encourages everyone to contribute. In general, PIUG Wiki registrants would have the choice of directly editing the content of the page via the Edit function at the top or adding a comment as you did. Of course, administrators can delete or edit contributions; Wikipedia managers/moderators/administrators do that all the time. I think you should consider the main PIUG website as our official pages and the wiki as our community collaboration medium.
