A pilot version of TMview, which provides free online access to more than 5 million trade marks, is available starting today.
This new tool was developed through collaboration between OHIM, WIPO, and the UK, Czech, Italian, Benelux, Portuguese and Danish IP Offices. It allows users to search the databases of existing trade marks registered by the participating offices for free.
The trade mark information from the rest of the European IP Offices will be available between in late 2009 or early 2010.
