Would you like it if EUIPO were to become a participating Office in the WIPO Digital Access Service (DAS) system?
For example, suppose you have obtained a Registered Community Design (RCD) in the EUIPO, and now you wish to file a US design patent application claiming priority from that RCD. To perfect the priority claim at the USPTO, you need to somehow obtain a certified copy of the RCD application and you need to file it at the USPTO. It is not easy to obtain a paper certified copy of the RCD application. If only EUIPO were to become a participating Office in the DAS system, then you could easily use DAS as the way to get a certified copy from EUIPO to USPTO.
Here is your opportunity to join others in a request to EUIPO that it join the DAS system. A letter will get sent to the EUIPO asking it to join the DAS system. If you wish, you can become a signer of that letter. To read the letter and to see how to sign, click here.
