The KIPRIS, an intellectual property rights information service, has expanded the scope of its database on international patent.

Launched in 1996 by the Korean Intellectual Property Office, the KIPRIS service, an acronym for “Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service,” allows anyone to access information on intellectual property, free-of-charge.

The platform has so far provided information on patents owned by 12 countries, including the U.S., China, Japan, Russia, Taiwan, Australia, France and Germany.

Starting Dec. 15, the database has expanded its scope to 13 more countries -- Austria, Denmark, Israel, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Colombia, the Philippines, Poland, Slovenia and, Switzerland, as well as several countries in Eurasia. With this addition, the service offers about 78.1 million cases of patent data from a total of 25 countries.

“With the latest update of patent data, we expect that this will allow Korean companies better access to information on intellectual property and help them to make inroads in other potential markets outside of Korea,” said an official from the Korean Intellectual Property Office.

“Given that data is a crucial element in the upcoming era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Korean Intellectual Property Office will continue to work to create easier and faster access to information on intellectual property, information, in particular, which pertains to technological innovation.
