We slowed the pace a little bit this week for some well-deserved vacations. Despite this, we still deployed several improvements to our patent and trademark fee platform – you can find everything below. We’ll be back to full strength next week!
Let’s see what changed!
Smarter Route Recommendations
We’ve made Route Finder a bit smarter. It’s now trained to understand more complex filing scenarios and no longer recommends impossible routes – like nationalizing a PCT application directly in France.
IP Forecaster Interface Improvements
We’ve improved the layout of the Route Finder screen. We now include the priority country at the top of the screen, and the route costs are aligned better and easier to view.
Patent and Trademark Fee Platform Bug Fixes
- We fixed an issue where the system allowed users to add the same jurisdiction to a forecast multiple times. IP costs are high enough; no need to make them worse.
- We changed the forecast output screen terminology for costs associated with additional pages to be… “Costs for additional pages.” That took a lot of thought and planning.
