SUSPENSION OF the Italian Patent and Trademark Office TERMS

To help businesses, yesterday the Italian Patent and Trademark Office issued a decree according to which all time limits which expire in the period between March 9 and April 3, 2020 – with the exception of time limits related to either proceedings for oppositions to registration of Italian trade marks or appeal proceedings ex art. 147 (1) CPI – are suspended. 

At the end of this period of suspension, such time limits will begin to run again for the remaining part.
