Visual search for TMview extended to Czech Republic
TMview’s visual search facility, which allows users to search for trade marks in the world’s largest free, online trade mark database, has been extended to another national intellectual property office.
The intellectual property office of Czech Republic (UPV) has enabled the functionality of TMview’s visual search facility with its trade mark database. This allows for the image search function to be used on trade marks from this country that have an image, further enriching TMview as a whole.
The extension to UPV in TMview’s visual search follows the addition of Ireland, Slovakia, Estonia, Bulgaria, France, Greece, Lithuania, Romania, Spain, UK, Malta, Sweden and Italy, bringing the total number of countries participating to 14. The EUIPO aims to further extend this functionality to other Intellectual Property Offices.
In 2017, an image search facility was implemented within TMview for trade marks from the UK Intellectual Property Office, the French Intellectual Property Office and the EUIPO on a pilot basis.
The extended visual search is a result of the work undertaken through the European Cooperation Projects at the EUIPO.
