11 Million Brand Records

Those conducting trademark and brand research now have an even more useful search tool.

Launched in 2011, the World Intellectual Property Organization's (WIPO) Global Brand Database now includes trademark data from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, expanding the database to more than 11 million* records.

In addition to U.S. trademark** records and other data sets, the database pulls together large collections such as International Trademarks filed under the Madrid System (updated daily), Australian Trademarks (updated weekly), and Canadian Trademarks (updated weekly).

The database is easy to use, and includes a concise section on "How to Search" (find it by clicking "help").

* The current number is 11,169,012 -- and growing daily
**For patents, try searching WIPO's PATENTSCOPE database.
