THE TRADEMARK OFFICE JOINS THE TMCLASS DATABASE FOR CLASSIFYING PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
The Colombian Trademark Office signed a memorandum of understanding for technical cooperation with the Intellectual Property Office of the European Union (EUIPO) to implement support tools for users, such as TMclass. Mexico, Brazil and Peru are other Latin-American countries which are already using this tool.
The TMclass database comprises more than 70,000 terms, from which trademark applicants can choose the scope of coverage for their trademarks.
This database consists of a dynamic set of terms which may be updated by all participating offices in an open and transparent manner.
Another advantage offered to the TMclass users is the possibility to search and translate words and terms in 40 different languages.
