Improved TMview version launched in beta


Mostar, October 16, 2019 - 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 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 trademarks 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.

The link to the enhanced TMview beta is as follows:

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, European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) informs.

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.

Launched in 2010, TMview is available in 36 different languages and currently contains more than 53 million trademarks.
