Learn the Patent Cooperation Treaty from video lectures

WIPO offers a series of twenty-nine video lectures which can be very helpful if you want to learn about the Patent Cooperation Treaty.  These videos are very well made, and the presenter, Mr. Matthias Reischle, is a very good presenter.  I particularly like the intro theme song music.

The PCT has the potential to be a bit dry at times.  Matthias does a very good job of injecting some energy into the various topics.

One particularly nice touch is that the lectures are closed-captioned, meaning that you can click on the “cc” button and see English subtitles.  This could be particularly helpful for the viewer for whom English is a second language.

The table below provides the duration of each of the lectures.  The running time of the twenty-nine lectures adds up to six hours and fourteen minutes.  That may seem like a long time, but it will be time well spent.  I recommend these lectures.

Have you watched the lectures?  Did you find them helpful?  Please post a comment below.
