BOIP Improves Trademark Holder Privacy in Online Register
In order to meet trademark owners’ increasing privacy concerns, the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) recently stopped showing trademark owners’ addresses by default in its Trademarks Register.
While IP representatives’ addresses remain fully visible by default, the Register now only shows trademark owners’ name and town/city. Only users logged into the BOIP website whose My BOIP accounts contain at least one valid trademark, design or i-DEPOT registered with BOIP are now able to see trademark owners’ street and postcode.
BOIP has announced that it will implement the same change in its Designs Register.
