Practice Paper on Examination of Figurative Marks Published


The National Directorate of Industrial Property under the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining of Uruguay (DNPI) has published a Practice Paper concerning the examination of absolute grounds for refusal as regards figurative trademarks with purely descriptive words/expressions.

The DNPI is the first Latin American IP office to analyse and find common ground with the criteria developed under the Common Communication on the Common Practice of Distinctiveness – Figurative marks containing descriptive/non-distinctive words, referred to as marcas mixtas (mixed marks) in Uruguayan terminology.

The Practice Paper has been made publicly available in Spanish and English.
