Non-Solicited Invoices and Notices Relating to Your Patents And Patent Applications

Thursday, January 10, 2013
A number of our clients have received invoices and fee notices which on their face appear to be from an intellectual property office (for example CIPO, WIPO or the German Patent and Trademark Office) but are either from third party service providers or scam artists.  Should you receive an invoice or notice relating to your patents and patent applications, prior to taking any action with respect these invoices and notices, we strongly recommend that you contact your Patent Agent to ensure that these invoices and notices are legitimate.
