The Problem

This applies to patents, trade marks and designs.

If you are applying for one of the above (or already have a granted patent or registered trade mark or design), you may well receive a letter from an organisation asking you to record the details of your IP with them for a fee.

The trouble is, there are so many Intellectual Property offices around the world, how do you know if the request is from a bona fide organisation and the request for payment worthwhile?

The Solution

For a £10 + VAT fee, we will allow you to upload an image (scan or photo) of the correspondence you have received. One of our trained staff will then look at the correspondence and we will write to you within 24 hours to let you know whether you should pay the money requested, and if not who you should contact as an alternative. This way, you take whatever action is necessary to make sure you do not lose any rights.
