Abstract:

A statistical analysis technique is proposed to research and analyze the quality of patent agents. We apply time nodes and collect data and try to explore the demand for “patent agents” for China’s intellectual property rights of enterprises and the quality requirements of patent agents. The study found that the enterprise demand for patent agents will continue to increase, but the academic requirements for applicants to the enterprises are not very high, the enterprises prefer the patent agents to have professional work experience. In addition, the majors of patent agents are strictly limited and targeted: Languages, majors, and professional experience constitute the basic configuration of patent agent quality.
