September 2012: Controller’s decisions at the IPO


In the month of September, 2012 the Controller’s offices issued 94 decisions.  Out of these 94, 46 decisions were granted, 33 refused (including abandoned and withdrawn) and no file uploaded for the remainder (15). There is one instance of a typographical error: perhaps unintentional – where the Controller allowed the application but numbered it incorrectly.  The case is for application 762/MUMNP/2008, and the  Controller allowed the application for 787/MUM/2008.
Some interesting decisions: The decisions for section 3(k) / 3(d) / 3(e) make for an extremely interesting read!  The decision for a divisional filing is also interesting because this is one of the few instances where the Patent Office has allowed an applicant to split the application.
