The letter to Christian Archambeau, the Executive Director of EUIPO, garnered eighty-four signatures and got sent out today by Priority Mail Express. You can see a PDF scan of the letter here and you can track the courier package here. Here is the “ask”:
We write to you as design practitioners and applicants for protection of industrial designs. Many of the undersigned are members of the Industrial Designs Listserv, a community of design practitioners.
We are writing to request that the European Union Intellectual Property Office become a participating office in the WIPO Digital Access Service (DAS).
We thank you for your consideration of this request.
