Intellectual Property Office refreshed website and logo

The Intellectual Property Office announces launch of its refreshed website and new logo from 1 December 2008.

Enhancements to the website have been introduced as a result of extensive user consultation. The website now has a dedicated area for professional users, easier access to online services, improved access to consultations to broaden the audience who shape intellectual property policy and new interactive features to provide education and awareness.

In the future, the Intellectual Property Office will introduce web-based toolkits and guides to help businesses make the best use of their ideas.

Sean Dennehey, Assistant Comptroller said:

"A lot of work has gone into refreshing the website. We hope that businesses small and large, new and longstanding will find it much easier to get the information and guidance they are looking for."

On the same day, the Intellectual Property Office introduces a new logo which is aimed at building on its already successful brand. To be consistent with the logo and brand identity our title from 1 December will be "Intellectual Property Office" (rather than "UK Intellectual Property Office").
