IP network

Cooperation is a mandate and a mission at the EUIPO.

The IP world is ever more interlinked and interconnected, so to help our customers and to strengthen the global IP framework, we cooperate and collaborate with partners both in the EU and internationally.

 

Our network is built through European cooperation in the area of tools and services, and at international level throughout the world.

 

Our IP network encompasses our European partners in the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN); the national and regional intellectual property offices of the EU. Together, we build advanced tools and services for our customers, and we develop and implement common practices.

At international level, we implement a set of EU-funded projects for the European Commission in China, South-East Asia (the IPKey South-East Asia and the Arise+IPR projects), Latin America, the Caribbean, Georgia and Africa.

We also cooperate bilaterally with other countries and regions around the world, as well as with international forums like TM5 and ID5.

Our Institutional Relations function handles all interactions between our major partners: EU institutions; national and regional IP offices of the Member States of the EU; and user associations. It is here that the Secretariat of the Management Board and Budget Committee, our governing bodies, is based. The Institutional Relations function also handles the Liaison Meetings, and is in charge of the two-way information flow between the EUIPO and its stakeholders through a number of bilateral and ad-hoc events.

Through the European Observatory on Infringements of Intellectual Property Rights, transferred to the EUIPO in 2012 under Regulation (EU) No 386/2012, the Office coordinates a number of pan-European networks, including the IP in Education Network, the European Intellectual Property Prosecutors’ Network and the Judges’ Network. Cooperation is also carried out with EU agencies and international bodies like Europol, Eurojust, CEPOL, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI), the European Patent Office (EPO) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

The Out-Of-Commerce Works Portal goes live

 

‘Forgotten stories can once again become our shared history’

A new Out-Of-Commerce Works Portal has been launched today by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). Out-of-commerce works are works, such as books, films, or visual works that are still protected by copyright but are no longer or have never been commercially available.

European libraries, archives, museums and other cultural heritage institutions currently contain millions of out-of-commerce works in their collections. They still hold great value for research or education purposes or are simply entertaining.

For many years, Europe has supported initiatives for better online access to Europe’s rich cultural heritage, by using modern digital techniques. However, cultural heritage institutions’ mass digitisation projects have often not been possible due to legal difficulties in obtaining all the necessary prior authorisations of the individual rights holders (rights clearance).

In order to help cultural heritage institutions fulfil their mission to benefit European culture, Directive (EU) 2019/790 1 introduces a legal framework to support cultural heritage institutions in the digitisation and cross-border dissemination of out-of-commerce works.

Information about out-of-commerce works has to be recorded in a public single online portal, the creation and management of which has been entrusted to the EUIPO.

The portal, which is being launched today, is the main publicity measure of this new regime. The main purpose of the portal is to provide access to information about the ongoing and future uses of out-of-commerce works, as well as to make it easier for the rights holders of these works to exercise their rights. The regime will complement the measures already in place for the use of orphan works at European level (see notably the Orphan Works Database).

Cultural heritage institutions across Europe are digitising more and more of their collections and making them available online. However, it has been observed that collections comprising works from the 20th century are available online to a much lesser degree than collections from the periods before or after the 20th century. This effect has been called ‘the 20th century black hole’ 2.

It is expected that the new out-of-commerce regime will unlock great opportunities for the digitisation and dissemination to the public, across Europe, of out-of-commerce works held permanently in the collections of cultural heritage institutions, so that forgotten stories once again can become our shared history.
