Consultation on Expansion of the IPO Patent Opinions Service
03 September 2012
The IP Federation has submitted a response to the consultation seeking seeking views on the IPO’s Patent Opinions Service, with closing date 4 September 2012.
The IP Federation supports the Government’s policy objective to achieve strong and sustainable economic growth to ensure future prosperity for the UK economy. We agree that intellectual property and the ability to turn innovative, engaging and sustainable ideas into business success is a vitally important part of this.
It is hoped that any changes to the IPO Patent Opinions Service will be to this end, rather than simply provide a fast-track system for revocation of patents with no safeguards built in for patent holders.
