JIPA`s participation in the 20th session of WIPO-SCP

jipaJIPA participated, for the first time since May 2003, in  the 20th session of WIPO-SCP (Standing Committee of the Law of Patents) held at Geneva, Switzerland, January, 2014.

The subjects of the meeting have been “Quality of patents, including opposition systems,” “Exceptions and limitations to patent rights,” “Patents and health,” “Transfer of technology,” and “Confidentiality of communications between clients and their patent advisors”.

JIPA aims to synchronize the direction of its actions towards harmonization of the patent laws with the opinions of the other participants. It is interesting to observe the presence of developed and developing countries as well, which have different points of view regarding patent rights protection.

The discussion was focused on the international harmonization of patents, based on the different positions.

JIPA will continue to participate in the forum and to follow up the activities, because it helps understanding international trends of harmonization of patent laws.

    The new EU trade mark Regulation enters into force on March 23rd. As a result, the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) will change its name to the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

    The amending Regulation also revises the fees payable to the Office, including an overall reduction in their amounts, particularly in the case of trade mark renewal fees. On 23.3. 2016, the Office’s online application forms and fee calculator will be automatically updated to reflect the new system.
    From its base in Alicante, Spain, OHIM has processed more than 1.3 million Community trade mark applications in 23 EU languages, from nearly every country and region in the world, since 1996.

    The Amending Regulation was published on 24 December 2015 and is part of the EU trade mark reform legislative package that also includes the replacement of the existing EU Trade Mark Directive (Directive 2008/95/EC of the European Parliament and the Council).

    OHIM is the EU’s largest decentralised agency. It is entirely self-financed, receiving no funding from the EU Budget. As well as managing the Community trade mark and the registered Community design (RCD), it works in collaboration with the EU national and regional IP offices to build a stronger IP system across the EU for the benefit of users.
