Amended Industrial Design Regulations

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office has introduced amendments to the Industrial Design Regulations which are effective October 5, 2008. The changes allow for greater flexibility in submitting design applications with respect to the colour and size of images, and permit the filing of colour drawings and photographs. There is also more flexibility to include an article’s “environment” (i.e. subject matter that is not part of the article) in the drawings. The amendments are posted at the Canada Gazette website and a summary is listed in the FAQ section of the CIPO site.
