Filing a trademark application in Argentina
What is a Trademark?
To begin with, a trademark is a word, symbol or design, or a combination of these. As a matter of fact, the main purpose of a trademark is to distinguish the goods or services of one person or organization from those of others in the marketplace. Filing a trademark application in Argentina
First of all, a registered trademark has to be approved and entered on the Trademark Register held by Argentina´s Patent & Trademarks Office (INPI). Thus, the registration is proof of ownership. The trademark owner can authorize its use by third parties and, of course, sell it at best convenience. The registration of a trademark gives its owner the exclusive use for ten years. Once issued, the title can be renewed every ten years from the date of grant.
Indeed, trademark registration can be a complex process. An experienced IP lawyer can save you time and money by avoiding pitfalls such as poorly prepared applications and improper research. However, the prime reason for hiring an experienced Lawyer is his ability to address concerns of Argentina´s Trade Marks office. If you fail to respond correctly, your application will likely fail.
