Queries regarding title registration
In response to queries regarding title registration, the online information service determines whether a given title has been used for a commercial publication since 1945. Title searches are conducted in the database of the German National Library, covering the period from 1945 to the present, and in the electronic edition of the Verzeichnis lieferbarer Bücher (German Books in print). Queries regarding title registration are processed in accordance with the "Gesetz über den Schutz von Marken und sonstigen Kennzeichen" (dated 25 th October 1994, BGBl I 1994, 3082) and not in accordance with copyright law. Title registrations published in the Börsenblatt für den Deutschen Buchhandel are not taken into account. If identical or similar titles are found, printouts will be enclosed.
