Website statement


In principle the articles in the website are categorized into tutorials and (news) blogs.  The tutorials are mainly for Hebrew speaking inventors and other laymen as far as IP, whereas the blogs/news coverages and commentaries are mostly for international IP professionals.  As such the tutorials are as a rule in Hebrew whereas the news is almost entirely in English under the English version of the website.  However, some news, mostly local, that is more relevant to Israeli IP practitioners is in Hebrew.
