It’s crazy to think that Christmas is around the corner and 2012 is nearly finished. CreateIP has enjoyed some incredible achievements lately, including three award wins, Shayne completing his patent attorney exams and expanding the team once again – please join me in welcoming new staff member Amanda Parr!

While we want to wish everyone all the best of the holiday season we have again chosen to make a donation to a deserving charity in lieu of sending out Christmas cards through the post. This year the donation will go to the SPCA.

As always we provide opinions and news on happenings in the IP world via Facebook, so if you don’t want to wait for our newsletter, do check it out!

In this issue of CreateIP News we update you on:

-Shayne becomes a registered patent attorney
-Welcome Amanda Parr
-NZ joins the Madrid System
-AIPF Annual Conference update
-CreateIP award wins
-Amanda Smith writes for Envoy

Enjoy! Till next time, take care and have a wonderful holiday season,
Robert Snoep
