It's a new day, it's a new month, it's a new fee...and the feeling is

From the Virgin Island we received a follow up piece regarding the forthcoming increase in trade mark registration fees.

Katherine Van Deusen Hely writes as follows:
Beginning September 1st, 2015, the British Virgin Islands will welcome its modern new trademark regime. Along with the new laws will come new (and much increased) fees. Previously charging some of the most modest official fees in the Caribbean region, the new trademark fees will go up significantly once the new laws go into effect. For example, the new official fees for single class registrations will range from $200-250 as compared to the current fees of $15-64. Likewise, the fees for renewal will be raised from $10-40 per mark to $250 for the first class and $150 for each additional class in a multi-class registration.
