Visual search in TMview extended to Benelux

    TMview’s visual search facility, which allows users to search for trade mark images in the world’s largest online trade mark database continues to grow.

    The Benelux Office of Intellectual Property (BOIP) made its trade mark images available to the visual search tool in TMview on 5 February 2020.

    In 2017, an image search facility, which enable to search for trade marks using images, was implemented in TMview on a pilot basis.

    The extension of the TMview visual search to the BOIP follows its extension to the IP offices of Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the EUIPO, bringing the total number of participating offices to 23.

    The extended visual search in TMview is a result of the work undertaken as part of the EUIPO’s European Cooperation Projects.
