Important Resolution by PTO to keep patent applications alive
The Argentinian Patent Office has issued Resolution No. P-187, which states that applicants of pending patent applications filed before January 1, 2013, must inform the PTO whether the priority application has been granted or not. Those applications for which the required information is not filed will be considered as withdrawn.
The purpose of this Resolution is that only those applications which are still important to their applicants be examined. This is to prevent examiners losing time in examining applications in which their applicants have lost interest but have not expressly withdrawn.
The required information must be filed before November 28, 2014.
