Compilation of IP Regulations launched by Chilean PTO
The Chilean Institute of Industrial Property (INAPI) has recently launched a revised and updated compilation of legal texts including constitutional provisions, laws, treaties, international agreements and regulations regarding intellectual property in force in Chile.
The document,the first edition of which was first launched in 2010, compiles the legal texts that directly refer to different aspects of IP such as patents, utility models, industrial designs, trademarks, denominations of origin and geographical indications, copyright and related rights, software, and plant varieties, as well as the protection of undisclosed information and compliance.
This compilation also includes IP treaties signed by Chile, such as the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property, the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), the Trademark Law Treaty or the International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV), among others. Additionally, this document also compiles bilateral free trade agreements signed by Chile with countries and regions such as U.S.A., Europe, Mexico, Central America, Australia, Canada, China, Japan and Korea.
According to INAPI, the document promotes the regulations on IP protection and compliance, as well as facilitating public access to these legal sources.
