said they expected to have finished drafting the bill's implementing rules and regulations by March.
"We are targeting that by January, the Office of the President has already signed this and then we can start implementing the guidelines.
We expect to finish within three months," he

Right now it's not attractive to go through this process because applicants would either pay to the BIR
or go to the courts.
With this [bill], many would be encouraged to get land titles."

would handle residential patents.
