Good morning. I hope everyone is having a productive and restful start to the New Year. Let’s get right down to it, read below for the latest headlines in foreign filing news:

  • In case you missed it: inovia released their 2014 Year in Review! Last year, we launched a new website, became the #1 filer of PCT applications in the world and expanded our agent network. Click here to read this, as well as the top PCT national stage filing destinations for our clients.
  • IP Watchdog also released a year end article, this time inviting industry leaders to make patent and intellectual property wishes for 2015. Read more here.
  • If you file trademarks electronically, it’s about to get a lot less expensive. The USPTO recently announced a reduction in fees beginning January 17, 2015.
  •  Fun patent of the day: Apple recently patented a phone where bending is a feature and not a flaw. Interesting!
