Renewal Period Amended

Recently, the Patent and Trademark Office of Argentina (INPI) published Resolution N° M-1735 in the official Gazette. It establishes a new way of computing the trademarks renewal period.

In the past INPI calculated the term of validity of the registration as from the granting date of the renewal, which in the practice represents a period of time from the expiration of the registration till the issuance of the organism's renewal resolution.

As from January 1, 2012, the trademark's renewal term will be counted from the date of expiration of the trademark duration. The renewals will be counted automatically, for identical and consecutive periods, no matter the time that takes the renewal to be granted.
