Applicants Can Now Defer Publication of Industrial Design Patent Applications

Beginning May 20, 2014, an industrial design patent applicant has the option to file a request for deferred publication simultaneously with the filing of the application or at any time prior to the publication date. The maximum period allowed for the deferred publication is thirty (30) months from the filing date or priority date of the application. If the request for deferred publication is made after the filing of the application, the applicant may request for a specific time to publish the application, provided that it does not exceed the allowable thirty (30) months deferment period.
