Korea: KIPO facilitates GUI design applications

According to a presentation held during the USPTO's annual design day on 8 April 2014, the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) will facilitate applications for designs related to Graphical User Interfaces (GUI). From now on, applicants can file GUI designs without an indication of an underlying hardware product such as e.g. a mobile phone.

In addition, KIPO will allow dynamic or animated GUI applications provided the applicant also supplies multiple figures or screenshots of the animation.
