We received a query today from one of our clients, who is interested in filing a divisional patent application off a pending case in Singapore.
I had advised our client that a divisional application may be filed off a Singapore application before the grant fee is paid. Of course, the Singapore application must be alive at that point and not have been abandoned.
The question then became: if the divisional application must be filed before we pay the grant fee, when do we need to pay the fee for grant in the Singapore patent application?
The BIO International Convention (Bio 2016 San Francisco) will be held in San Francisco from 6 to 9 June 2016, at Moscone Center.
Dr Chong-Yee Khoo will be attending the conference to meet with our clients, associates and colleagues. We look forward to seeing you there.
Dr Chong-Yee Khoo and Irene Low of Cantab IP will be attending the 138th Annual Meeting of the International Trademark Association (INTA).
We are looking forward to meeting with our colleagues, clients and associates at the conference.
One of the nicest things about the INTA Annual Meeting is being able to meet friends and colleagues at smallish get-togethers, where there is an opportunity to speak properly to another person and to find out what they think about the world.
If you like this sort of thing, please come along to the INTA Tweetup this year.
Details of the event are as follow:
Date: 23 May 2016 (Monday)
Time: from 3 pm to 5 pm or so
Venue: Baskin Robbins, 7440 International Drive, Orlando FL 32819 (Map and Directions)
I’m very pleased to have been invited to be a speaker at the BioPharma Asia Convention 2016.
