Trademark and Patent Registration
Patents, trademarks and other intellectual property protections are an essential part to maintaining your business’s competitive advantage in Mexico. In a market such as Mexico, imitation products and unauthorised use of corporate images constitute a real issue. However, trademark and patent protection may be obtained in Mexico at a fraction of the price compared to other countries.
BASIC TRADEMARK REGISTRATION
MexicanIncorporation can register your company’s logo and brand with the Mexican Intellectual Property Institute. A good intellectual property plan is necessary to protect your investment. Our intellectual property partner served as a director within Mexican government. As in other jurisdictions, trademark registration in Mexico will protect your company’s logo and name for the industry within which your company operates throughout the entire country.
To qualify for patent protection in Mexico, your product or process must be of a novel or unique character with potential economic value. Otherwise, a patent can be applied for relating to an innovation upon an existing product or process that has substantially different, improved or unique results. MexicanIncorporation can register your product with the Mexican Intellectual Property Institute and can even work with you to enforce your patent where you feel it is has been infringed upon by a competitor.
INTERNATIONAL TRADEMARK REGISTRATION
MexicanIncorporation can register your company’s logo and brand with the World Intellectual Property Organisation to protect your company’s competitive advantage world wide, wherever you plan to do business.
