The Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (Ipos) hit the top three in the world’s most innovative intellectual property offices annual ranking. The World Trademark Review (WTR) placed Ipos in its IP Office Innovation Ranking for 2019 in the second place, after the EU Intellectual Property Office, alongside Chile and Spain.
