The Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) has partnered with Clarivate Plc, a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, to improve its trademark research services. Using AI-powered technology from Clarivate, BOIP has simplified the process of researching image trademarks for uniqueness and availability.
BOIP joins innovative IP offices around the world like the EU Intellectual Property Office, IP Australia and the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore who have adopted image recognition (IR) and new technologies to deliver innovative and more accessible services to users. Technology has transformed trademark research, automating a previously time-consuming and manual task. Today, the ability to search and compare image trademarks is essential as 40% of trademarks worldwide contain an image component.
By integrating AI-driven image recognition software from Darts-ip, acquired by Clarivate last year, combined with technology from TrademarkVision, BOIP's Trademark Register now offers users easy to use and time-saving search functionality. Users can quickly determine whether a proposed image trademark is acceptable or if it infringes on an existing trademark.
Clarivate is supporting numerous government IP offices globally, providing them with image recognition and workflow solutions for examiners and researchers, as well as access to DWPI, the world's most comprehensive database of enhanced patent information. This includes the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), Georgia's Sakpatenti, IP Australia (IPA) and the IP Office of Singapore (IPOS). BOIP is the latest government IP office to partner with Clarivate.
Darts-ip, awarded best legal tech company by Trend Legal Awards in Belgium, was acquired by Clarivate in December last year. Darts-ip's case law data and supporting analytics solutions is offered alongside Clarivate patent, trademark and domain data and solutions, across DerwentTM, CompuMarkTM and MarkMonitorTM.
