The Republic of Korea joins TMview
As of 12 February 2014, The Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) has made its trade mark data available to the TMview search tool.
The integration of KIPO is a concrete result of the International Cooperation programme managed by OHIM in collaboration with its international partners.
This last extension brings the total number of offices participating in TMview to 35 and with the addition of more than 2,7million Koreantrade marks, TMview now provides information and access to more than 23 million trade marks in total.
Since the introduction of TMview on 13 April 2010, the tool has served more than 5 million searches from 205 different countries, with users from Spain, Germany and Italy among the most frequent visitors.
