On June 10, 2011, several articles of the Rules of the Mexican Industrial Property Law (RIPL) were reformed. The changes became effective on June 13.
The most significant change involved an article regarding applications for distinctive signs (trade names, trademarks and slogans). The change in question involved the wording of the final paragraph of Article 56 of the RIPL, related to word marks and slogan applications.
