United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office publishes advice for rights applicants

The UKIPO has published advice for individuals and representatives who are applying for IP rights during the coronavirus outbreak.

The office says that they will ‘do all they can’ to assist individuals and representatives who have been affected by the coronavirus and extend deadlines where national and international legislation allows.

Where a failure to meet a time period results in loss of rights, the IPO have said that those rights will be reinstated or otherwise restored in certain circumstances and are moreover willing to consider requests for extensions of time as favourably as possible on a case-by-case basis.
