Changes to UKIPO Fees

The UKIPO, in typical “under-the-radar” mode, have released a press release setting out fee changes from 6 April 2010.

As expected the required information is spread over several pages and tables:
http://www.ipo.gov.uk/about/press/press-release/press-release-2010/press-release-20100112.htm
http://www.ipo.gov.uk/pro-types/pro-patent/p-law/p-law-guidance/p-law-newfees.htm
http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si2010/uksi_20100033_en_1

As well as changes to fee amounts, a number of new fees are introduced:
PF4 – £350 – Continuation of patent proceedings before the Comptroller
PF21 – £50 – Recording assignments, licences and security interests
PCT Application – £150 – Request for restoration of a right to claim priority
Reductions for filing forms PF9A and PF10 online increase from £10 to £20.

In the press-release you’ll be pleased to see my Tottenham neighbour Dave get his mandatory soundbite.
