 LLRX.com - Mexican Trademark and Copyright Law as it Applies to E-Commerce
According to the Mexican Industrial Property Law (“IP Law”), a trademark is defined as "any visible sign adopted by a manufacturer, merchant or service provider to identify its goods or services and distinguish them from others of their same kind of class in the market place".
Based on the foregoing, you will realize that Mexican trademark owners are entitled to file infringement actions against third parties for the unauthorized use of their trademarks through the Internet.
Considering the risks imposed by the Mexican legislation for intellectual property infringement, it is our strong recommendation to have preventive legal counseling, since it is cheaper and less troublesome that implementing defensive strategies once the claims have risen.
