After the recent incorporations to the trademarks finder TMView (Tunisia joined last October 20th) and to the trademarks classification tool TMClass (Iceland and Montenegro), OHIM has announced that Cyprus joins DesignView.
Since last November 10th, the Department of Companies Registration and Official Receiver (DRCOR) which is part of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism of the Republic of Cyprus has made available the data of their designs in the search DesignView.
The union of Cyprus to the search tool is a further confirmation of the signal of adjustment of industrial property in today’s modern economy, mainly characterized by strong globalization.
With this incorporation, more than 2.5 million designs are available through Designview, being Cyprus the 18th country to join the tool.
The full list of countries participating in DesignView:
Bulgaria, Benelux, Cyprus, Slovenia, Spain, Estonia, France, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia, Malta, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, Sweden, and OHIM.
How diffused the same OHIM, since the introduction of Designview (November 2012), the tool has served more than 730,000 searches of 133 different countries with users in Germany, Spain, UK and France among the most frequent visitors.
From our side, we welcome with pleasure the new addition, and we will closely follow the evolution of this free search tool, so useful for both industrial property professionals and private needing to find information and have access to designs and trademarks (through TMClass TMview).
