Nurit Maoz, Head of Trademark Department at Israel Patent Authority, Found Dead

Nurit Maoz, 60, and her husband Noah Maoz, 64, were apparently murdered in their Jerusalem apartment on Shabbat. Their bodies were found by their son who alerted emergency services.

There is a gag order on the case.  Funeral details have not yet been announced.

Nurit was the head of the trademark division of the Israel Patent Authority. She was a consummate professional who, in recent years,  was responsible for many changes including the computerization of the trademark database thereby enabling searches based on graphical elements, the conversion of the department to a paperless environment and implementation of the Madrid Protocol.

She will be sorely missed by the Israel IP Community who are shocked by this development. Our condolences are extended to her family, friends and colleagues.
