Glossary for Intellectual Property

I thought it would be useful to compile a list of commonly used abbreviations used in Intellectual Property and Technology Law.



Feel free to add additional abbreviations:



IP - Intellectual Property

IPR - Intellectual Property Rights

TM - Trade Mark

WIPO - World Intellectual Property Organisation

EPO - European Patent Office

Madrid - a worldwide trade mark application under the Madrin Convention

CTM - Community Trade Mark

UKIPO - UK Intellectual Property Office

OHIM - Office of Harmonisation of the Internal Market (administrate CTM and CDR)

CDR - Community Design Right

There are many more.
