IPO Joins Similarity

The UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has joined the Similarity tool.

Similarity is a common database of comparisons of goods and services that allows users to assess whether given goods or services are considered similar or dissimilar – and to what degree – according to the practice of the participating IP offices. Similarity benefits users by bringing more transparency to the decision-taking process of EU national offices and OHIM. Similarity also improves the predictability of opposition decisions.
