The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has unveiled a one-of-a-kind image-search function for its Global Brand Database, adding a new feature that allows users to upload an image to search for visually similar trademark and other brand-information records from among the millions of images in the collection.

The image-search functionality, which is the first such application among free, public intellectual property databases, was presented on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at the International Trademark Association (INTA) annual meeting in Hong Kong. It adds an important new search possibility for the Global Brand Database's users, who often wish to see if a logo, trademark or other similar image is separately registered for use.

International Law & Validity

Digital Media RightsA vital aspect in generating of our copyright certificates is the universal law of the services and products we provide.

164 countries are those with whom we work and where our customers are, all signatories of the Bern Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, whose last amendment dates September 1979. The Berne Convention is funded by the World Intellectual Property Organization and is registered with the Secretariat of the United Nations.

The Bern Convention is based on three basic principles:

  • Literary and artistic works by authors from the countries of the Union, or first published in one of these countries will be able to receive in each of the other contracting states the same protection as those granted to the works of their own citizens.
  • This protection must not be conditional upon any formality.
  • This protection is independent of the existence of a corresponding protection in the country of origin of the work. However, if a Contracting State provides a longer term than the minimum prescribed by the convention, and the work ceases to be protected in the country of origin, protection may be denied once protection in the country of origin has ceased.

In this environment of compliance with the 38 articles of the Convention, all signatory states agree that:

  • The protection of copyright is spread equally in all signatory states regardless of their country of residence or the nationality of the author.
  • The copyright of a literary, artistic or scientific work corresponds to the author by the mere fact of its creation.
  • The obligation to register the work in the official records of intellectual property so that all rights are granted to the author is eliminated.
  • The protection granted by the Convention shall be the life of the author plus fifty years after his death.
  • The author shall be presumed, unless proven otherwise, as who is identified as such in the work, by name, signature or identification mark.

In this way, in the case that the author detects plagiarism or unauthorized use of his work by a third party and decides to exercise his rights, morals or property, he does not need to demonstrate that it is registered. He needs to demonstrate his authorship prior to the creation of the plagiarized work.

We cannot forget to mention the Creative Commons work-licensing model, through which the author voluntarily and publically renounces a part of his rights, for the purpose of the dissemination of the work. In the same way, our system registers and certifies works with All Rights Reserved or Creative Commons. A Creative Commons work is still always protected by Intellectual Property rights, provided that, for example, the author never renounces his right to attribution.

Digital Media Rights generates certificates of authorship or copyright to all digital works regardless of their medium; web, PDF, Power Point, Word, etc. Copyright certificates are digitally signed and include a tamperproof electronic time stamp.

¿A qué tipo de propiedad intelectual (P.I.) recurren con más frecuencia las empresas para proteger una ventaja competitiva? La mayor parte de las personas mencionaría alguna de las esferas más conocidas de la propiedad intelectual: patentes, derecho de autor, marcas o diseños. Pero se equivocarían. La forma más común de protección que utilizan las empresas es el secreto.

¿Por qué el secreto comercial recibe entonces menos atención que otras esferas de la propiedad intelectual? Hay varias razones. En primer lugar, el secreto no conlleva un proceso de registro oficial, sino que cada empresa lo ejerce como práctica habitual. En segundo lugar, aunque los principios generales de la legislación sobre secretos comerciales —denominados también información no divulgada o información confidencial— son similares en la mayoría de los países, existen pocas reglas o normas comunes sobre su aplicación. En tercer lugar, las controversias sobre los secretos no suelen divulgarse, a fin de que no se conviertan en parte del debate público.

La International Intellectual Property Alliance o IIPA (Alianza Internacional de la Propiedad Intelectual), es una coalición del sector privado formada por siete asociaciones que representan los productores estadounidenses de contenidos y obras protegidas por las leyes de propiedad intelectual, incluyendo software, películas, programas de televisión, música, libros y revistas, que trabajan con el fin de mejorar la protección internacional del copyright junto con el gobierno estadounidense, gobiernos extranjeros y otros representantes del sector privado.
