Workshop on trade marks: best practices on bad faith and colour marks

More than 280 participants joined a successful Virtual Workshop on Color Marks and Bad Faith Applications for two days of information sessions and online discussions on September 25 and 26.

On the first day, participants were received with the presentation by José Crespo, from the Legal Department of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), who addressed the requirements, criteria and assessment of Color Marks in European practice. After a brief break, Mayra Ramos, Divisional Director of Trademarks of the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property, and Hugo R. Gómez Apac, Judge of the Court of Justice of the Andean Community, shared their knowledge about the practice of Color Trademarks in Latin America . The first day concluded with a question and answer session.

On the second day, the workshop began with a discussion on Bad Faith Trademark Applications, including determination criteria, practical experiences and preventive measures. This part of the workshop was presented by Ewelina Sliwinska and again by José Crespo from the EUIPO Legal Department. The day ended with a round of questions and answers.

The event not only provided valuable information on Color Marks and Bad Faith Applications, but also encouraged collaboration and knowledge exchange between intellectual property and trademark professionals from the IP offices from Latinamerica and the EU.
