INFORMATION ABOUT TRADEMARKS IN ARGENTINA

The Argentine Trademark System has the following characteristics:- The trademark registration term is for 10 years. The registration or application of a trademark in Argentina may be void if registrant or applicant knew or should have known the trademark belonged to another party. Oppositions to applications are not resolved by the Trademark Office.  Any person with a "legitimate interest" can oppose a trademark application; the trademark use is required for renewal of registration every 10 years, and to prevent a cancellation action (at any time during the 5 years prior to the event).  Argentina follows the attributive system where the right in a given trademark comes into effect with the proper registration.  One can be granted the registration of a trademark, if there are no oppositions by third parties, or if there are oppositions which are effectively negotiated and withdrawn, and if there are no Office actions, or if there is an Office action but Applicant satisfactory answers it. If an opposition is not withdrawn or if the Office action leads to a formal rejection of the application, the Applicant's only recourse is to take the matter to the courts.

International Classification has been adopted. The law considers that "use" of a trademark could involve: The marketing of any product. With regard to goods, the use in connection with a service will be sufficient; the use of a trademark as a trade name or part thereof also complies with use requirements.
