Today is the day for Turkey and the DAS system

Today is the big day for the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office and the WIPO DAS system.  Starting today, the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office is a Depositing Office for every type of application for which it is possible to be a Depositing Office. 

(It will be recalled that I blogged about this development on April 17, 2022 (blog article).)  Here are types of applications that will be available through the DAS system:

  • Turkish national industrial design applications
  • Turkish national patent applications
  • Turkish national trademark applications
  • Turkish national utility model applications
  • PCT international applications filed in the RO/TR

This offers a reminder that Turkey is one of the fifty-nine places where utility model protection (WIPO article) is available.
