Israel replaces paper with plastic

The IPKat says 'shalom' to Sanford T. Colb, who informs him that all prior art references submitted to the Israel Patent Office must be now be submitted on a CD ROM. These include X and Y references cited by an examiner in a jurisdiction outside of Israel, as well as any other references the applicant wishes to submit to the Examiner. In addition all sequence listings must be submitted to the Israel Patent Office on a CD ROM.

So, if you have many dealings with the Israeli Patent Office, do remember to order lots of blank CD-ROMs.
