CIPA's response to the PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE PATENTS RULES

This response to the Intellectual Property Office’s Consultation on proposed changes to the Patents Rules is submitted on behalf of the Patents Committee of the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA). Members of the Patents Committee include practitioners from “private practice” (individual private practice firms) and practitioners from in house patent/legal departments. Thus, the views expressed represent those of attorneys who practice before the IPO and bodies who are represented by these patent attorneys, which include multinationals, small to medium enterprises, universities and private individuals.
