Albania joins TMview and Designview

As of 04 July 2016, the Albanian General Directorate of Patents and Trademarks (GDPT) has made its trade mark and design data available to the TMview and Designview search tools.

The integration of GDPT is a concrete result of the International Cooperation programme managed by EUIPO in collaboration with its international partners.

With GDPT on-board, TMview now contains data from 55 participating offices and Designview from 49 offices.

With the addition of more than 12.000 trade marks from GDPT, TMview provides information and access to about 40 million trade marks in total. Designview contains more than 9,6 million designs, including almost 200 from GDPT.

Since the introduction of TMview on 13 April 2010, the tool has served more than 21,8 million searches from 151 different countries, with Spain, Germany and Italy among the most frequent users. As to Designview it went live on 19 November 2012 and has since then served more than 1,8 million searches from 143 different countries, with users from Germany, Spain and the UK among the most frequent users.
