Law/Patents - Law: Patents, Trademarks, Copyright
French term or phrase: P. Pon de/du
What does this stand for and what's the English equivalent? It is followed by the name of a company, and a signature underneath, and it's at the end of a Belgian patent. I'm guessing it stands for something like "on behalf of" or "by authority of" or some similar "legalese"?
