Common Practice on Figurative Marks

Colombia's Superintendence of Industry and Commerce (SIC) has published a practice paper on figurative marks containing descriptive/non-distinctive words.

The practice paper provides a clear and comprehensive explanation of the principles on which the practice of the SIC and the IP offices of the European Union Intellectual Property Network (EUIPN) is based. It seeks to increase transparency, legal certainty, and predictability for the benefit of the users and examiners of the IP offices involved. It is intended to be a reference for IP offices, users of the EU and Colombian IP systems, and other interested parties.

The practice paper is available in Spanish and English.
