Global IP Updates During Coronavirus Pandemic

As the world grapples with the ongoing pandemic of the novel coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19, intellectual property attorneys and their clients have been affected in various ways.

Many offices worldwide have closed in accordance with stay-at-home orders. Like many other law firms, the IP attorneys of Panitch Schwarze are working remotely, and we are fully operational and actively supporting our clients.

Since most IP document filing is done online, we expect the prosecution of patent, trademark, and copyright applications to continue smoothly. The situation is, however, changing day by day. Panitch Schwarze is monitoring IP offices from around the world, and sharing updates here.

Click here to read the latest updates on global IP systems, including the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, U.S. Copyright Office, World Intellectual Property Organization, European Patent Office, and more.

If you have questions about how the outbreak of coronavirus might affect your intellectual property, please contact one of our IP attorneys at 888-291-5676.
