Further to our recent article on this website regarding the introduction of a new patent law in Antigua, we have just learnt that the Registrar has allowed an extension of time for filing patent applications under the old Act, which will expire on 15 July 2007. If you wish to file any patent applications for the registration of granted UK or European (UK) patents, please therefore send us your instructions as soon as possible so that we may ensure that this deadline is met.
