Brief description of the notified legal text

 

The Rules amend the Trade Marks Rules 2008, the Trade Marks (Fees) Rules 2008 and the Patents (Fees) Rules 2007. The Rules revise some of the fees and services that the UK IPO charges/offers in relation to its trade marks and patent registration functions:

 

•      Examination policy change: introduces a system whereby the IPO examines a trade mark         application for payment of half the fees. 

•      E-filing discount introduced for trade marks and patent filings. 

•      Brings in powers to suspend the fast-track trade mark service.

•      Introduces new fees for applications for series of 3 or more marks and caps the number of         marks that can be filed as a series (6).

•      Removes rules that permit applicants to divide unsuccessful applications for series into         separate applications.

•      Fee for extension of time in trade marks proceedings increased.
