CAS Expands Global Patent Coverage with Malaysia
In mid-November, CAS enhanced its extensive patent authority coverage in CA/CAplus by adding the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia. Malaysia (country code MY) is the 62nd authority covered by CAS.
Malaysian patent documents expand CAS already substantial coverage of the worlds major patent authorities. CAS actively continues to expand coverage, particularly from smaller patent authorities which would otherwise be largely inaccessible to many patent searchers.
You can quickly access multiple sources with broad coverage of 62 patent authorities covered by CAS. Coverage of Malaysian kind code A is retroactive to January 15, 2010. This includes granted patents and utility models. Malaysian A patents are eligible to be covered as basics or added to existing patent families. Approximately 1,000 patents are expected per year (approximately 200 basic patents) from Malaysia.
