A new website for UK IPO, and an event to explain everything

With autumn already among us, it is time for a general season makeover. While embracing the new beauty trends, you may also want to embrace the idea that, starting 6 October, the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) will have a new website.

First launched in the same year when Blur released Song 2 and Tony Blair became the youngest Prime Minister since Lord Liverpool in 1812, the IPO website has seen many changes over the years and has become an invaluable resource for all those working in or just interested in UK IP.
To help its customers with the move, the IPO has produced a short video to outline the main changes.
In addition, on 2 October [that is on Thursday] the IPO will hold 30 minute awareness sessions to demonstrate the new website and its key features, with Transition Team being on hand to answer any questions you have. The event will be held at 88 Kingsway, London WC2B 6AA, and will have 4 sessions at 10am, 11:30am, 1.30pm and 3pm.
To register your interest in attending, please email david.barker@ipo.gov.uk  stating your preferred session time. Ideally, please include the number of people you expect to attend from your organisation.

  1. I am first struck by the large red warning sign: "DON'T PAY UNNECESSARY COSTS".

    I try not to, but, unfortunately, our patent agents occur many unnecessary fees, spend too much time on things without doing a good job, and charge way too much per hour. But then, that's business!

  2. Change agent to one that does better work for less money. That's competition.

  3. Competition? Where? Maybe I need new glasses.


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.
