TMview, an all-in-one trademark searching tool that offers information from 13 trademark offices, has celebrated its first year of operation. Last year, the website has registered nearly 230,000 visitors, which shows that it has been a success. A new version, with further improvements, is therefore already being prepared.

Using TMview is easy and free of charge. With this tool you may carry out trademark searches throughout all the trademarks of the Offices that participate in this project, which currently include OHIM and WIPO, as well as the Benelux, Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, Estonian, Italian, Portuguese, Slovakian, Slovenian, Spanish and UK offices. From next month on, data of the French Office will also be available.
