Design renewal

International design registrations may now be renewed online. The World Intellectual Property Organisation has introduced an e-renewal interface which enables users to specify different sets of contracting parties for different industrial designs. The e-renewal interface also takes into account the history of the international registration to be renewed and calculates the fees accordingly. However it will still remain possible to request the renewal of an international registration in writing, using the DM/4 form, or simply through the payment of the renewal fees.
