Our friends at Reinhold Cohn & Partners recently released a newsletter highlighting the latest IP developments in Israel. Here are some of the articles that caught our attention:
- New patent fee increases officially took effect January 1st, 2013. We posted a breakdown of these changes on our blog, noting the currency exchange rate.
- When it comes to patent term extensions (PTE’s), Israel will likely be amending their laws governing pharmaceutical products to ensure that other countries recognize their extended timelines for patent protection.
- The Israeli Patent Office (ILPO) has adopted the Locarno Classification for registering industrial designs, amending previous regulations adopted back in 1925.
