Global COVID-19 Due Date Extensions
Updated: May 19, 2020
As with the USPTO, many patent offices worldwide have published notices of relief for applicants affected by coronavirus. The time extensions, the period of time to which the relief applies, and the rules and conditions for applicants vary from country to country.
The relief provided is also subject to change pending new time periods and additional rule making and conditions. We recommend a consultation with an attorney or agent within each office's jurisdiction for the specific relief afforded applicants as the COVID-19 outbreak continues.
At Leber IP Law, we receive continuous updates regarding COVID-19 from our network of foreign associates worldwide. Please contact us if you have any questions to ensure that we provide you with the most recent information. For our clients, we would be happy to consult with a foreign associate regarding time extensions and other relief available for your specific situation.
