The EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) will expand the field of application of one of TM View’s functionalities – the image search, and it will interact with the tools developed by national offices through API.

The decision is also ambitious because of the intended result – currently, image search is only available to those national patent offices that are part of the EU Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN). By the end of 2023, this search algorithm is expected to make inquiries in all national offices that are part of the TM View platform.

Such a move is expected to increase coordination and cooperation between different national offices, as well as limit the costs of maintaining their search tools.
