Important Changes in Opposition Proceedings

On July 12, 2018, the Argentine PTO adopted Decision P-183, which initiated a new opposition procedure for trademark applications under Law No. 27,444, which brought about two substantial changes:

- It establishes an administrative proceeding instead of the previous one in which the matter was judicially settled.
- The burden of urging the proceedings now falls on the opponent; before, it was the applicant who was obliged to act.

This resolution will enter into effect as of September 16, 2018, but, in practice, all pending opposition proceedings must be adapted to this new process.
