Italy and EPO PCT Patent Fee Updates

We’ve seen a surprisingly small number of patent fee updates this fall, and most of the changes have been minor inflationary adjustments in PCT or Madrid costs. This week is no exception, with a few minor updates for Italy and the EPO, courtesy of the weekly PCT Applicant’s Guide update.

Let’s see what changed!
