Latin America - Case studies

Case studies

The Latin America IP SME Helpdesk offers a wide range of case studies showcasing different experiences from EU SMEs doing business in Latin America. The topics range from the registration of trade marks in Mexico to the protection of confidential information in Argentina.

These case studies aim to illustrate the difficulties related to the protection of intellectual property that EU SMEs deal with when internationalising to Latin America, and how to avoid them.
