Software Patents in Israel – Guidelines on Hold

The last act before leaving office of the previous commissioner, Dr Meir Noam, was to announce that there was a new policy regarding the patentability of software inventions and that guidelines would be forthcoming by the end of January. 

See Patentability of Software – Notice from the Israel Patent Office for more details.

 In a not totally unexpected move. Dr Guy Rotkopf has announced that the guidelines are delayed.

It is not clear when the guidelines will issue, but we will endeavor to report developments whilst they happen!
