Thanks to the joint efforts of both IP Key Latin America and the EUIPO, the Mexican Institute of IP (IMPI) has just found common grounds with the criteria listed under the EUIPO's Common Communication (CP6) — Convergence on graphic representations of designs - Common Communication.
The practice document provides a clear and comprehensive explanation of the principles on which the practice is based. As a rule, these will be applied by the IMPI and by the intellectual property (IP) offices that are members of the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN).
The publication of the practice paper seeks to increase clarity, transparency, legal certainty and predictability for the benefit of the users and examiners of the IP offices involved. It is intended to be a reference for IP offices, users of the EU and Mexican IP systems, and other interested parties.
To read more (in Spanish), please refer to IP Key's website, or (in English) on the EUIPN website.
