01-10-2019 02:00 / Improved TMview version launched in beta

An improved beta version of TMview is now available alongside the original interface, as part of a planned improvement to the world’s biggest free trade mark search engine. The improvements are a core part of EUIPO’s European Cooperation activity in the framework of its Strategic Plan 2020, and have been developed in collaboration with the national and regional intellectual property offices of the EU. The interface has been completely redesigned after extensive user testing, allowing for a greatly enhanced navigation and search experience. In addition, the tool has a significantly improved search results display and categorisation system which allows results to be shown in order of relevance to the search terms. The search also has a wide set of search criteria which can be personalised and segmented for a quicker and more efficient search. Previous searches can also be accessed directly from the home page. A new feature in the beta version allows two or more trade marks to be selected and placed side by side for comparison purposes. Users can also easily export search results to PDF, Excel and Word formats. For legal purposes, the original version of TMview is still considered to be the valid source of information when extracting documentation to present before EUIPO for earlier trade mark substantiation. TMview was launched in 2010, and now contains over 53 million trade marks from 67 participating offices. Since launch, it has received nearly 48 million search requests from 166 different countries, with the most frequent searches coming from the UK, Germany and China. Available in 36 different languages, it also contains a visual search facility which can be used when searching for trade marks from 15 participating offices, and which is continually being extended. The beta version will run alongside the original version throughout 2020 and will be available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. All users are invited to send their feedback by clicking on the option ‘Your feedback’ at the bottom of the page. Contributions will be greatly welcomed by the development team as they will help to further improve TMview for the benefit of users.

The TMview project is the best-known of the cooperation projects backed by OHIM and the national IP offices in the EU.TMview went “live” in April 2010 and when work currently under way to incorporate data from France is completed, will offer access to close to six million trade marks drawn from 14 offices: Benelux, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Italy, OHIM, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, the UK and WIPO. French trade mark data has already been supplied to TMview and is currently being integrated in the tool. The expanded dataset is undergoing user acceptance tests and is expected to be made available to the public next month.“The enrichment of TMview with French trade marks represents a real advance for the users of the search portal", said Yves Lapierre, Director General of INPI, the French IP office. "What\'s more, this project illustrates a real commitment to cooperation at a European level aimed at improving services to our customers, which I welcome. This is especially necessary in the context of a globalised economy.”
