The UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has announced details of its new patent service which will see the process of applying for a patent dramatically transformed over the next 12 months.
On Wednesday 7th June the IPO will be hosting a webinar, One IPO Transformation: One Year To Go, that will explain everything that is happening and provide an opportunity to ask questions. Daniel Chew, President of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA), said about the webinar: “With a number of changes on the horizon, it is important that our members are aware of the IPO’s timelines and how these changes could affect them.
