MyIPO is proposing a revision of official fees for trade marks and patent. The proposed fee schedule is available in MyIPO official website (www.myipo.gov.my).
The revision is proposed to improve the IT capacity and introduce certain changes, which includes waiver of some fees for online information. Fees for most services in patents and trademarks face an increase of 5% to 50%.
Of interest will be the revision of trade mark application procedure. The request for publication, which is submitted only when a trade mark is approved, will then have to be submitted along with new trade mark application.
MyIPO is also inviting feedback on the proposed fee revision before 31 Dec 2014.
