IPO Philippines formally opens e-filing of Trademarks

 

The Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines formally opens today the Trademark Electronic Filing System (TM Online), at its office in Makati City.

The offering of the new service, which is a part of its continuing effort to improve and enhance its services to its clients and other IP stakeholders is among the highlights of the IP Philippines’ celebrations of the World Copyright Day on April 23 the World IP Day on April 26.
 

An applicant wanting to avail of the new service must accomplish the electronic form and submit it together with the attached electronic reproduction of his mark subject.

He must also have a deposit with the Equitable PCI bank or a holder of its card, as upon completion of the application form, he would be directed to the payment facility and given instructions on how to pay his fees.

Unless there is a claim for colors, the electronic reproduction must be in black and white, scanned at 300 dpi and saved in .jpeg format. It must also measure 50.8 mm in height and 76.2 mm in width. If the application is for an image mark, a good copy should be provided, as it could no longer be modified once it is submitted and received by IP Philippines.

Once the payment has been received and confirmed by the bank, the applicant would be contacted by IP Philippines within one or two days after his filing of his application via an electronic mail, informing him of its receipt of his application.

The e-mail would also contain his application number and his official receipt number.

In case the applicant did not receive a confirmation from the bank on his payment, he must immediately contact his payment center. This would also mean that the IP Philippines did not receive his application.

Any application is considered filed with the IP Philippines upon the bank’s confirmation of the payment.
 

A foreign resident applicant wanting to avail of the service must have an account with the local bank Equitable PCI Bank. A local resident agent who will receive the notices for and in behalf of the foreign resident applicant must also be appointed. 


The offering of the electronic filing system for trademark application is also a part of IP Philippines’ strive for excellence and global competitiveness.
