COVID-19 IP Policy Tracker

  • May 7, 2020
  • Firm News

Now is a time of great uncertainty for all of us as the COVID-19 pandemic has affected many of us personally and professionally. Most Intellectual Property Offices around the world have taken efforts to ease the burden upon patent applicants that are adversely affected by COVID-19. However, it is challenging for patent applicants and patent professionals to keep track of how each Intellectual Property Office has addressed deadlines and document requirements. 

Fortunately, WIPO has consolidated information related to the measures adopted by IP offices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the extension of deadlines. In addition, the policy tracker provides information on legislative and regulatory measures for access and voluntary actions.
