The Patent Law Treaties Implementation Act of 2012 (PLTIA) amends the patent laws to implement the provisions of the Geneva Act of the Hague Agreement Concerning International Registration of Industrial Designs in title 1, and the Patent Law Treaty (PLT) in title II. The Hague Agreement facilitates intellectual property protection for industrial designs by inventors in every member country and intergovernmental organizations that are Contracting Parties to the Hague Agreement through a single standardized application filed directly with the International Bureau (IB) of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) or indirectly through an appropriate Contracting Party's Office, such as the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). It is administered by the IB of WIPO located in Geneva, Switzerland. The information requested in this collection is necessary for respondents to file an international design application and for the USPTO to process international design applications and related correspondence under the Hague Agreement. The IB also uses this information to administer international design applications as required by the Hague Agreement.
