2020 March UPDATE

  • The TM-Link dataset has been updated to include more recent data and also has expanded to include more information. As such, the structure of the dataset has also changed.

TM-Link is an international dataset IP Australia and Swinburne University have developed in collaboration. The dataset provides information from various jurisdictions, modelled under a common schema for greater accessibility to researchers and analysts. TM-Link also links together similar trade marks from different countries based on common information, such as similar trade mark phrases and applicant names. These links identify families of international trade marks, which provide a new and unique insight into international branding trends and export behaviours. IP Australia and Swinburne University are looking to continually develop TM-Link to become a core part of the global IP data landscape. If you have any suggestions or requests to model any additional data points, or improve the current accuracy of the data please let us know via email to ipdataplatform@ipaustralia.gov.au.
