Sweden Implemented Similarity Tool

The Swedish Patent and Registration office (PRV) has recently implemented the Similarity tool , developed within the framework of the Cooperation Fund. With this implementation, 15 national and regional IP offices across the ETMDN are now using similarity.

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.
