EUIPO and EURid begin a closer collaboration to help EU SMEs

The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the registry manager of the .eu and .ею (EURid) have begun a closer collaboration in order to support applicants and owners (particularly EU SMEs) with their trade marks and domain names.

The EUIPO and EURid will establish a reciprocal process in which applicants will be advised whether the domain name is available in the EU when registering their EU Trade mark, and the other way round.

Moreover, a common study on what is usually registered first by the EU SMEs, tackling fraudulent registrations done in bad faith, will be jointly done by both organisations. A Feasibility Study on the creation of a tool to inform users on the availability on the terms they might be searching, is also under work.
