A number of major IP-related developments are affecting Mexico, from the Trans-Pacific Partnership to the trademark opposition system. WIPR assesses what these changes mean for rights owners.
Mexico’s intellectual property system is going through several changes. The two most prominent affecting IP law are the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the new opposition system.

“The TPP is one of the most ambitious trade agreements ever negotiated,” says Alejandro Luna, partner at Olivares in San Ángel.
