Other types of data

We also have searchable online databases – known as open IP data – where you can access information on IP rights applications. 

Our open IP data is free. However, due to equipment and bandwidth limitations, you can't use our online databases for bulk data downloads. If you do, you may be denied access to these services without notice.
