Taking a view: where Germans and Spanish both go

The Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM) has happily announced that trade marks from the French national offices have now been added to the TMview search tool -- the new tool which provides free access to trade mark applications and registrations from a number of leading trade mark offices, including OHIM. 

The latest expansion of TMview brings the total number of offices contributing data to 14: the other 13 are OHIM, WIPO, the UK, Czech Republic, Italy, Benelux, Portugal, Denmark, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia and Bulgaria.

With the addition of almost one million French trade marks, TMview now provides access to approximately six million trade marks.   In its first year it welcomed about 230,000 visitors from around 150 different countries, with users from Spain, Germany and Italy among the most frequent visitors.

You can find out more about it here.  Merpel is most impressed. She has heard so much about Germans visiting Spain, but here is somewhere that Germans and Spaniards both visit!

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
