We have become aware that some people may have received an email from American Express advising that the Intellectual Property Office has partnered with American Express® to allow settlement of customers’ patent payments online using American Express® Business.  The email suggests that this will provide rewards and costs savings to IPReg attorneys.

American Express has confirmed that this email was sent in error.  Neither IPReg nor the IPO have entered into nor endorsed any membership awards arrangement with American Express.  Please disregard the email.
