Intellectual Property Office RSS feeds

What are RSS feeds?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. They enable you to be made aware of when a website has updated or added new content, without the need to visit the website itself.

How can I use them?

In order to subscribe to our RSS feeds, you will need a news reader. This is a piece of software which checks the feeds you have subscribed to and lets you read any articles that have been added.

There are lots of different types of news readers. Some web browsers and email clients already contain one; others are accessed via your browser (web based) and will let you access the RSS feeds you have subscribed to from any computer. Others require you to download and install a small application. These can only be used on the computer you installed the application to.

Many modern mobile devices can also be used to read RSS feeds.

Where can I get a news reader?

Simply go to any well known search engine and search for “News Reader” or “News Reader Software”.

Different news readers work on different operating systems and devices, so you should ensure you pick one which will work on your system.
