September 20, 2010 marked WIPO’s launch of WIPO Lex, a comprehensive online global IP reference resource which provides up-to-date information on national IP laws and treaties. WIPO Lex compiles IP data for over 60 countries with substantial coverage for an additional 100 legal systems. It further features analysis and interpretations of these laws and treaties.
WIPO Lex will be integrated into the WIPO Gold system, which was launched earlier this year. WIPO Gold provides online access to a broad collection of searchable IP data and resources.
WIPO Lex illustrates yet another way that technology is improving the IP industry. Speaking of technology, have you checked out inovia’s new client portal, offering one-click estimates for PCT national phase entry and European patent validation?
