The European Trade Mark and Design Network
The European Trade Mark and Design Network (TMDN) brings together the Office of Harmonization for the Internal Market (OHIM) and National Intellectual Property Offices in the EU member states, aiming at providing up to date electronic services, facilitating access to information and converging practice in the way offices examine, evaluate and enforce protection in the fields of trade mark and design.
In the European Trade Mark and Design Network website you will find free tools developed by the different IP offices and user representatives, as well as information to help you find your way to the relevant national or regional offices.
