THE CALANY Holding S. R.L. (Luxembourg, LU)

An accurate and flexible merged reality system and method that can be configured to allow remotely viewing and participating in real or virtual events. With the merged reality system, at the very least a portion of the real or virtual world can be streamed or replicated into the corresponding sub-universes that are part of the virtual world system, wherein some of the sub-universes are home to events that guests can view and interact with from one or more associated guest physical locations. The virtual world system can contain other virtual elements, such as pure virtual objects as well as graphical representations of games or applications. The virtual objects comprise logic, virtual data and models that give self-compute capabilities and autonomous behavior. The system allows guests to virtually visit, interact, and conduct transactions by using the virtual world system.

Remote viewing of events has generally involved physically present at the event as part of an audience in the local area, and watching the event through a screen (e.g. or on devices like a personal computer, television or smart phone) recording the event for later consumption through a device, or live-streaming the event.

In the case of live streaming the content is streamed via a server to devices that require it. The nature of media streams is often divided into two parts, which means that interaction with them is limited to viewing.

The creation of virtual worlds is possible due to technological advancements. Virtual worlds are graphical representations of real and imaginary worlds. Users can interact with one another or other elements via avatars or virtual replicas. However, the majority of elements of virtual reality today do not allow any type of autonomous or interactivity, limiting the ability for users to interact with the virtual worlds.

Therefore, advancements in the area of remote viewing and taking part in events using innovative applications and structures of virtual reality are required.

Many pharmaceutical firms and university researchers are seeking protection under patents for their work and research. Patents can be granted for products, processes, or method for making new materials. Patent protection has to be granted to an invention that is beneficial or novel and is not previously known to others in the same area.

Patents are a way to honor inventors who have commercially profitable inventions. They provide a reason for inventors to create. Small companies and inventors are certain that they will receive an income from their investment in technology development through patents. They can earn money through their work.

Patents play a vital role in companies, and they can:

Create and protect the latest products and services;

Enhance the value, appearance, and visibility of your products market;

Make your company and products stand out from the rest;

Get business and technical details.

Avoid accidentally using third-party content or losing valuable data, creative outputs, or any other output that is creative.

Patents transform inventors’ knowledge into a marketable asset, which creates new opportunities for job creation and business growth through licensing or joint ventures.

Investors who are involved in the commercialization and development of technology may find small companies with patent protection appealing.

Patenting can lead to innovations and new ideas. This information can promote creativity and could be eligible to be protected by patents.

Patents can be used to serve as an obstacle to unscrupulous third parties that profit from the efforts of an invention.

Are you looking for similar patents? Here are the steps to follow:

1. Brainstorm terms to describe your invention according to its function composition, use, or purpose.

Begin by writing down a concise detailed description of your invention. Avoid using generic terms such as “device”, “process,” or “system”. Consider synonyms for the terms you picked initially. Also, make note of key technical terms as well as keywords.

Use the questions below to help you determine key words or concepts.

  • What’s the purpose of this invention? Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
  • Is inventing a method to come up with something or to perform a function? Does it constitute an item?
  • What is the composition of the invention? What is the physical makeup of the invention?
  • What’s the purpose of the invention?
  • What are the terms used in technical terminology and key words that define the essence of an invention? To help you find the appropriate terms, use a technical dictionary.

2. These terms will allow you to search for relevant Cooperative Patent Classifications at Classification Search Tool. To determine the most suitable classification to your invention, scan the resulting classification’s class Schemes (class schedules). If you do not get results from the Classification Text Search, you might consider substituting your words for describing your invention with synonyms.

3. Go through the CPC Classification Definition to verify the relevancy of the CPC classification that you have discovered. The link to a CPC classification definition will be provided if the chosen classification title has a blue box that includes “D” on its left. CPC classification definitions can aid you in determining the classification’s scope, so you can select the one that is most appropriate. Additionally, these definitions can include research tips and other suggestions that could be helpful in further research.

4. Retrieve patent documents with the CPC classification from the Patents Full-Text and Image Database. By focusing on the abstracts and representative drawings you can narrow your search to the most relevant patent publications.

5. Use this selection of the most pertinent patent documents to examine each one thoroughly for similarities to your own invention. Be sure to read the specifications and claims. Refer to the applicant and patent examiner for additional patents.

6. Find patent applications published in the public domain using the CPC classification you picked in Step 3 from the Applications Full-Text and Image Database. You may also employ the same strategy of searching you employed in step 4 to limit down your search results to the most relevant patents by reading the abstracts as well as the drawings on every page. After that, you must review every patent application that has been published with care with particular attention paid to the claims as well as other drawings.

7. Find additional US patent publications using keyword searching in the AppFT and PatFT databases, classification search of non-U.S. patents per below, and also searching for non-patent publications of inventions with internet search engines. Examples:

  • Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
  • Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
  • Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.

To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
