Co-operation strengthens opportunities

Several public and private organizations all over the world have created trading platforms and marketplaces, where buyers and sellers of IP rights can meet each other. We at the Danish Patent and Trademark Office are one of them. But instead of focusing only on our own platform, we firmly believe that co-operating in the area of trade with IP rights is benefitting to all.

That is why we encourage anyone who has an interest in co-operating with us to contact us. Co-operation could be both exchange of listings (IP rights for sale or license agreements) or mutual marketing of websites.
