Canadian Intellectual Property Office to update online filing

Awesome smileCIPO has announced that at the end of July or beginning of August, the online mechanisms for filing patents on line will be updated.

Here’s the CIPO Website Link

Apparently you will be able to request yourself to be added to the trademark agent registry online. This would be more earth shattering if more than 14 people a year passed the examination, but it’s a step.

Also, you will be able to file a patent application from your mobile device!

Wait, what?

I don’t think that one is going to get a lot of usage. However, good on CIPO for trying to stay current!

Personally, I find filing patent applications online to be frightening enough using a big screen computer with a real keyboard, but if there is someone out there who can stomach filing a patent application on his phone, I want to shake his hand for having nerves of steel.  And the sense of a rabbit.
