Korea: Online registration fees for transfers and licensing reduced

On 1 July 2012, the fees for altogether 33 online patent requests including a transfer of the patent or the granting of a licence dropped by more than 10%. Moreover, the Korean Patent Office (KIPO) will from now on allow amendments in case there are any defects in the documents submitted together with these requests. This new regulation is expected to accelerate the proceedings and at the same time to greatly increase the convenience of requesters.
