DTU Library offers several types of services for companies from the local community:
Utility model, trademark and design
- Screening for whether an invention has already been patented, i.e. we perform searches in patent databases for you.
- Examination of a patent’s validity/legal status – has it expired? In which countries is it valid?
- Guidance on how to search in the databases you can use at the library.
- Arrange contact to the Danish Patent and Trademark Office, for example to have a dialogue search or a full novelty search done via the co-operation PATLIB.
Utility model, trademark and design are alternative possibilities for protecting your inventions and ideas. DTU Library can provide guidance on these possibilities.
