Patent Office Closures – Pesach 2018

The Festival of Pesach celebrates Human Freedom and the birth of the Jewish people.
The Israel Patent Office will be closed from Friday 30 March 2018, and all deadlines falling in the period that the patent office is closed, are suspended until the Israel Patent Office reopens on Sunday April  8th 2018.

 

WIPO, the UKPTO and some others are closed on 2nd April 2018 for the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Easter follows the full moon and more or less coincides with Pesach of course, as Jesus’ Last Supper was Seder Night.

Coincidentally, the China State Intellectual Property Office will be closed for the Tomb Sweeping Festival from Thursday April 5 through Saturday April 7th 2018. To the best of my knowledge, this has nothing whatsoever to do with Pesach or Easter.
