Cyprus joins DesignView

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.
