We are pleased to deliver the second part of the Informative Manuals on Trademark Legislation, prepared by the Committee “Informative Manual by countries” of the Inter-American Association of Intellectual Property (ASIPI). This work seeks to place in a single document the legislation, the practice and the procedure related to the protection of trademarks and domain names. The information has been organized in a uniform, agile and simple format that will allow you to easily find the desired information. With this work, ASIPI pursues the goal that all the actors of the Intellectual Property system know how to register, use and defend their trademark rights outside their jurisdictions. For this reason, like its predecessor, this compilation will be updated whenever the standards of the countries studied require it. - Mara del Pilar Troncoso
