The IPKat noticed when perusing the Patent Office's amended trade mark forms that they all bear the new Patent Office logo and corporate typeface. The new logo is rather similar to the old one, albeit somewhat simplified. The new logo has the words "The Patent Office" protruding from the left-hand side of the circle, rather than in its centre, is withot shadowing and has the words "patents, designs, copyright and trade marks" in a sans serif typeface.

The IPKat wonders what has prompted this change and also wonders if he missed the offical anouncement of the change.

  1. The new Patent Office logo does not appear yet on the main page of the web site or on patent forms. The layout of TM3 and other forms which have been changed means that those of us who use a template for completing the forms must redesign it. A helpful change to the forms would not be a new logo but the ability, as with EPO, PCT and OHIM forms, to fill them in directly on line or downloaded into Acrobat.


All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
