The Intellectual Property Office (IPOPNG) has launched its revamped website with an aim of having information accessible for stakeholders and general public.
This is to ensure compliance when clients register intellectual property rights.
Registrar of IPOPNG Amelia Na’aru, said the aim of the office is to improve its IT infrastructure to boost service delivery to its clientele.
IPA managing director Clarence Hoot said the team will continue to drive awareness to the public and stakeholders on its services and the availability of the website while congratulating IPOPNG staff.
Although the domain name www.ipopng.gov.pg has not changed, the new website is designed to match the modernised corporate and technological look and feel.
The website carries new features such as an online search link for PNG trade mark applications through the global brand database hosted by World Intellectual Property Organisation.
The global brand database allows clients to conduct free searches on trademarks registered in PNG and other countries.
Other features are, an online query form and processes in registering patents, trademarks and industrial designs and a list of recognised IP agents operating in PNG and abroad who deal with IP matters in PNG.
