Your search results will be displayed as an overview. Select a result to see more detailed information.
Grid view provides the following information for each search result:
- Title and/or representation of the trade mark
- Trade mark number or application number
- Nice Classification (goods and services classes)
- IP right status (active or cancelled)
- IP right phase (application or registered)
You can switch to list view by clicking on the list/grid button (not available in the mobile version).
In list view, for each result, you will see exactly where the search term has been found. You can then click on these references to refine your search.
Unlike grid view, list view does not provide any information on the IP right phase. The IP right status is indicated only by a symbol (green solid circle = active, red circle with a line through it = cancelled).
By default, search results are sorted by descending relevance. At the top, you will see all IP rights with a trade mark title containing your search term. These are followed by results for word elements of word/figurative marks, trade mark numbers, application numbers, owner’s address, representative’s address and, finally, any results for claimed goods and services.
By clicking on sort by, you can sort the results by filing date, registration date or expiry date.
Click on the arrow next to this to choose the order:
- Descending order – the most recent date or the most relevant result will be listed first.
- Ascending order – the earliest date or the least relevant result will be listed first.
The export function allows you to export the search results – up to 500 results – as a PDF file.
By clicking Add to favourites, you can save your search query and set a bookmark in your browser, for example. You need to log in to your user account to use this function.
You can use the Results per page function (located below the search results) to choose between 8, 16 (default), 32 or 64 results to be displayed.
