Renewal Process/New Installment Payment Changed

Effective by June 2010, a registered trademark can be renewed without any separate examination.

Furthermore, a five-year installment payment of trademark registration fees will be introduced:
Ten years of trademark registration fees have currently been based on a lump-sum based payment. Starting June 2010, however, the introduction of this system will allow customers to pay the first portion of trademark registration fees at the time of registration and the second portion within five years before the term of trademark rights expires.
