WIPO LAUNCHES TOOL TO TRACK NEW IP MEASURES DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

WIPO launched a new tool that tracks information related to intellectual property (IP) policy changes or other measures being implemented by WIPO member states in their response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

“The COVID-19 IP Policy Tracker is an information repository that will help all stakeholders navigate changes implemented by the worldwide IP community as it adjusts to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said WIPO Director General Francis Gurry.

Many national and regional IP offices are implementing measures to assist applicants and owners of IP rights, for example by providing extensions of time or grace periods for fee payments.
