New OHIM database for comparison of goods and services
A new OHIM database, developed to help examiners be more consistent and efficient in making comparisons of goods and services in their decisions, is to be rolled out to the public later this year.
The database started to be used internally in December 2009. The office is currently identifying improvements, in consultation with examiners and users, which will be incorporated in future releases. Public access to the system is planned for the middle of this year.
OHIM’s note presented at OAMI Users Group meeting on 15 March 2010 can be found at the Paper section of the OHIM Link Committee.
