21 - Chemical information in the new world of patents
Chris McCue Chemical Abstracts Service, United States
Patenting of chemistry-related research continues to accelerate worldwide. Nowhere is this trend more apparent than in the CAS REGISTRYSM database, relied upon by the world's major patent offices for information about novel organic and inorganic substances. To keep pace, information and intellectual property professionals depend on comprehensive, accurate, and timely chemical information to assess risk for future research endeavors, defend intellectual property, track competitive intelligence, and support strategic business planning. This session will highlight recent trends in patent information and how CAS continues to broaden and enhance its coverage of patents to meet the growing and evolving information needs of chemical and pharmaceutical companies, universities, government organizations, and patent offices around the world.
