Adv. Doron Neuman represents Toolbox Design. Their trademark application number 224994 was refused, and the applicant requested and was granted a hearing. the day before the hearing, it was noted that he had not paid the request fee and the staff of the patent office made efforts to reach him, apparently beyond that required of them. On the day of the hearing itself, the Patent Office managed to make contact with the legal representative who informed them that his client had decided to forfeit his right to the hearing. In view of the costs incurred in preparation, costs of NIS 800 were awarded to the State for wasting judgement time, unproductively used due to applicant’s behavior.
