THE TRADEMARK OFFICE (SAPI) INITIATED A PROCEDURE TO SPEED UP OPPOSITION DECISIONS
SAPI has initiated a process to expedite oppositions and has notified all opponents, by means of Extraordinary Intellectual Bulletin No. 566, that all oppositions must be ratified in writing in order to prove interest to continue with their proceedings. The deadline to ratify them will expire on November 14th, 2016.
SAPI will consider that all those who do not ratify their oppositions have no interest in continuing with their proceedings and will consequently allow them to lapse, giving free reign to the registration of the corresponding trademark applications.
