Georgian IP Office now aligned with CP10
The National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia (Sakpatenti) has published a practice paper on the criteria for assessing the disclosure of designs on the internet and to provide recommendations thereof.
Sakpatenti is at the forefront of the non-EU IP offices when it comes to finding common grounds with the criteria listed under the Common Communication on the Common Practice of Designs - Criteria for assessing disclosure of designs on the internet (CP10). The publication is the result of joint collaboration between SAKPATENTI and the EUIPO, within the framework of its international cooperation activities.
The practice paper provides a clear and comprehensive explanation of the principles on which the practice is based, which will be generally applied by Sakpatenti and the IP offices of the European Union Intellectual Property Network. They also aim to cover a majority of cases.
The main purpose of this practice paper’s publication is to increase transparency, legal certainty and predictabilityfor the benefit of the users and examiners of the different IP offices. It is also intended as a point of reference for these and any other interested parties.
The practice paper has been made available to the public in Georgian and English. The document is divided into two parts; the first part summarises the criteria, while the second part provides a complete explanation of the specific criteria applicable in each case.
