Spanish Patents and Trade marks Office (SPTO) goes totally online.
In an attempt to reduce the bureocratic burden on users, the SPTO has recently enforced the Spanish Act no. 11/2007 on "online access for citizens to public services", providing alternatives to the use of paper.
The SPTO has made available online procedures not only referred for the e-filing of applications (in those cases a reduction of 15% in the official tax is applied) but also for the most frequent steps before the Office: oppositions, answers to the oppositions, renewals, appeals, assignment and licence recordations, issuance of certifications or amendments in the entered owner's name or direction.
If these measures help to reduce terms and save some trees, this Class 46 member will be happy.
