Peter to add notes from WEHC here.
- "Swedish patent agents were responsible for between 30-40% of foreign patents in Finland."
- Starting in 1856 in Sweden and in 1876 in Finland it was required that for a foreigner to get a patent, a local patent agent must be identified. Andersson indicates that the requirement was intended to serve judicial processes.
- The technology classification system for patents was basically the German one, with some modifications. Jari Eloranta confirms this. We haven't documented the differences, but 77 is the main number/category for aeronautics and aviation.
- David E. Andersson; Matti La Mela. Gatekeepers of New Technology: Patent agents in the Nordic area at the turn of the 20th century. Presented at WEHC 2018
