First Latin American country to be part of WIPO´s database
Mexico, through the local PTO, has become the first Latin American country to add its database to the database managed by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
The main objective of WIPO´s database is to make easier the access to information concerning trademarks and other distinctive signs registered in several countries, including the U.S., Canada, Israel, and Australia.
Access to the database is free. It provides searches of 15 million signs, such as trademarks registries and denominations of origin and trademarks applications from different countries. In addition, it is possible to verify the availability of a certain trademark to be applied for a register.
