Why should I register my trademark?

Registering your trademark offers legal protection, preventing others from using it without authorization. It also facilitates legal defense in disputes and strengthens your market position. The registration is the property title of your trademark. Building your brand without having the title is like building your house on land without deeds.

What's the difference between a patent and a trademark?

A patent protects inventions, while a trademark safeguards names, logos, and distinctive symbols associated with products or services.

How can I check if my trademark is already registered?

The EvonnIP team can perform a thorough search in the trademark databases of the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) or the corresponding entity in your country of interest.

What is the validity of a registered trademark?

A trademark registration is valid for ten years from the date of granting the registration, and it can be renewed for periods of the same duration, provided that the declarations of use are submitted at the third year of being granted and with each renewal.

How long does it take to obtain a patent?

The time varies, but it can take between 2 and 4 years, depending on the complexity and workload of the patent office in the country where it is requested.
