UK Promotes Intellectual Property Ownership with 90-day Patent Proposal: Update from Nair & Co. International Expansion Services Team (Sunnyvale, CA) - A consultation paper seeking comments on the proposed ‘90-day patent’ has been floated by the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) about two months ago to promote intellectual property ownership in the UK. Companies as well as individuals could pay an extra premium processing fee of £3,500 to £ 4000 in order to speed up patent applications, which can be granted within 90 days under the new plans, finds out Nair & Co., which provides international expansion services for companies expanding overseas. The UK authorities also plan to raise awareness for counterfeiting, online piracy, and ways to tackle IP related crime and illegal downloading, which is likely to be implemented next year. It is expected that the document is subject to legislative changes “at the first available opportunity”. However a definite timetable for this could not be entrusted till now.
