Trademark Registration in Mexico
The implementation of an appropriate strategy on trademarks is an essential element to successfully achieve the promotion of any product or service. We provide trademarks services in Mexico, including the trademark application before the Mexican Patent and Trademark Office (IMPI).
Send us the following data-form to check the availability of a mark in Mexico:
Trademark use, Revocation and Renewal
To avoid the revocation of a registered trademark, such trademark must be used within a period of three years from the date of registration. The declaration of revocation of a registered trademark for lack of use, is not automatic; it ought to be requested by the interested party through an administrative pro-cedure before the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI). When renewing the registration of a trademark (every ten years) the right holder must truthfuly declare having used the trademark in at least one of the products or services to which it applies, and not having interrupted such use for more than three years.
Service of Trademark Surveillance
We have a surveillance service for the automated tracking of all trademak applications whose registration is requested before the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI), and which bear some resemblance to the monitored brands of our customers; so that we can timely detect unfair traders seeking to abuse the gained prestige of the monitored brand; as well as considering a written opposition to the registration; or eventually, to challenge the trademark trying to take advantage of the commercial reputation (requesting its nullity before a court).
Official Declaration of a Notorious or Famous Brand
In those cases in which the trademark has a wide diffusion, we may process before the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) the official declaration of a notorious or famous brand. Both official declarations are of extraordinary importance to prevent the registration of identical marks in other classes of products or services unassociated with the products or services covered by a registered trademark.
