ARLINGTON, Va., June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA is pleased to announce the publication of the April 2012 Supplement to Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Regulations, the latest update to a resource that responds to the requirements of rapidly changing intellectual property laws and fills the gap that existing publications leave in relevant administrative regulations.
This convenient, one-volume compilation of all the intellectual property regulations found in C.F.R. Volume 37 also includes extra materials not published in Volume 37—agency policy pronouncements; citations to public laws, the Federal Register, and Bloomberg BNA's Patent, Trademark & Copyright Journal; vital information governing the operations of the Patent and Trademark Office, Copyright Office, and Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panels; and comprehensive indexes to help streamline legal research. In addition, each supplement includes summaries of new material for quick reference.
Patent, Trademark, and Copyright Regulations is updated three times per year and contains more information than any available government compilation, which makes it an invaluable resource for intellectual property practitioners. In addition, the looseleaf format provides flexibility for adding new pages and substituting revised pages so that the volume, as a whole, stays current.
The April 2012 Supplement includes discussion of amendments to:
- The rules of practice in appeals to the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences
- Rules on adjusting and extending patent terms with respect to Information Disclosure Statements
- Rules permitting requests for prioritized examination for applications requesting continued examination
The Supplement also covers Copyright Office updates including:
- The cost of living adjustment for performance of musical compositions by colleges and universities
- The cost of living adjustment to satellite carrier compulsory license royalty rates
- The additional fee for travel expenses connected with educational activities
- The discontinuation of Form CO in registration practices
