The Cooperative Patent Classification system, known as CPC, is being developed jointly by two of the largest patent offices in the world: the EPO and the USPTO, and it goes live on January 1, 2013. This strategic collaboration harnesses the best classification practices of the USPTO and EPO and sets the stage towards the introduction of a truly global patent classification scheme. Learn more from this podcast by Richard Garner, the Product Director at LexisNexis responsible for the Intellectual Property research solutions, on the CPC.
