Some Israeli parliament members in the Constitution, law and justice committee of the Knesset, were informed, a few months ago, that the IPA stopped publishing the patent information on paper (in the official gazette) and started publishing the information in it’s internet website, but continue to collect the publication fees as before.

This information led to a 6,000,000 NIS class action.

The Ministry of Justice has announced that the fees will be refunded. The refund is estimated to be around 3,000,000 NIS.
