In March of this year, Alt Legal collaborated with World Trademark Review and other intellectual property experts to publish a study examining IP offices throughout the world. That study, published in the April/May issue of the World Trademark Review, can now be downloaded.
The study, “Registries transformed – the world’s most innovative IP offices revealed,” compared technology at government IP offices in the U.S. and abroad. Comparing offices using many different metrics, the study found the EUIPO office to be the most technologically savvy in the world.
