We have just published a short update on the new data protection notification fees regime which will take effect in October. For some (not all) organisations with 250 or more staff, the annual registration fee will jump from the current flat rate of £35 to £500. Take this link to see whether your organisation may be affected.

Our update also looks at the Intellectual Property Office’s new credit crunch beating “Right Start” service, which aims to take the sting out of the up front costs of applying for registered trademark protection. The service launches in October. Worth a look for any organisation which might otherwise be deferring a trademark application until the economic outlook improves.
