When WIPO was discussing at the SCP the patent database design, I 
suggested once that it would be good to have a "product related" patent 
category - so if you plugged in DVD then one could find the related 
patents (of course it is not as neat as that as there are cross 
applications) as the Chinese case on DVDs showed that it is a real 
problem... but this was not taken up... and while problematic, it could 
have gone a long way to making things easier for patent examiners in the 
South and for potential producers and diffusion of production...
