When your disclosure is not enough ... WIPO guidance helps
Fresh from our friends at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) comes a new document. It has a long and hard-to-remember title:
Guidance on Preparing and Providing Reproductions in Order to Forestall Possible Refusals on the Ground of Insufficient Disclosure of an Industrial Design by Examining Offices (Rule 9(4) of the Common Regulations under the 1999 Act and the 1960 Act of the Hague Agreement)
In other words, it's 17 pages on how to avoid disappointment when seeking to register a design through the Hague System when the design you've submitted is insufficient. Thank you, WIPO, for your guidance!
You can read the document in full here.
