CATEGORICAL STATEMENTS HELP OVERTURN RULING FROM MEXICAN TRADEMARK OFFICE

In the case “TRUEWHITE” trademark application in Mexico, the Mexican Trademark Office (MTO) initially denied TM protection based on descriptiveness of the products covered in application including LEDS.

We provided sound advice to our client CREE, INC. and filed the nullity action against the MTO decision. A fine piece of work which connected law articles from the Mexican Trademark Law, NAFTA, Paris Convention; research of recent cases in Mexico and abroad; Court’s citable precedents; TM searches and market research facts were put together by our team and as a result the Federal Court overturned the MTO ruling and obliged said authority to grant registration of the mark to our client.

AMMENDMENTS TO THE INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY LAW

Mexico’s Senate is reviewing two bills to amend the Industrial Property Law, one proposes a fundamental review of the law, the other aims to introduce a procedure for opposing patent grants and penalties for abusive practices in the enforcement of invalid patents.

This reform would initiate an integral review of the law in order to meet Mexico's economic requirements and bring IP legislation into line with the global view of industrial property.

The main proposed changes to prosecutions in respect of patents relate to:

  • establishing time limits for filing divisional applications and voluntary amendments to claims;
  • filing certified copies issued in electronic format;
  • implementing a form of proceeding that would allow the public to submit information about the patentability of a published application to the Mexican Institute of Intellectual Property;
  • clarifying and interpreting certain definitions; and
  • increasing the term for replying to Patent Office actions from two to three months.

The proposal also suggests making computer-implemented inventions patentable where the invention incorporates a technical contribution.
