TrademarkVision announced that it has officially released its visual search technology for 3D design patents in the U.S., which allows companies and individuals to protect their intellectual property. DesignVision is already being used by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
In the past, searching through U.S. patented designs to ensure a new design didn't infringe on anyone's rights would require significant subjectivity and the need to sift through thousands of designs based on searching with text descriptions. This sometimes results in human error and is time-consuming.
TrademarkVision worked extensively with intellectual property offices to solve the complex problem of visual search for design patents. TrademarkVision has extended its computer vision and machine learning algorithms to release DesignVision to the U.S. market. Designs can be anything from a series of photos, line drawings or even a scribble on a napkin to represent a 3D design and will be picked up by the program's artificial intelligence.
