After Brexit, all UK trade marks were no longer accessible on the Global Brand Database. This has now changed.
The Global Brand Database is a database of millions of trade marks, operated by the World Intellectual Property Organisation. This is a search facility where a user can access all the details of trade mark applications and registrations around the world.
The inclusion of UK trade marks means this platform has become even more useful for all.
The addition of existing registered marks will take place over the next few weeks, and has taken place after the signing of a co-existence agreement between the UK Intellectual Property Office and World Intellectual Property Organisation.
