Global database: Chile is in!

The cooperation agreement between the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the Chilean National Institute of Industrial Property (INAPI) makes Chile the first South America country to participate in the Global Brand Database. Mexico has also an agreement with WIPO and making Chile the second Latin America country to do so.

This ‘Global Brand Database’ as the name implies, is a database (with open access and free of charge) providing access to trademark data from 33 countries plus data from the European Registry and the international Registry kept by WIPO. As of today WIPO Global Brand Database has 30,082,405.

By joining this system Chile is incorporating data corresponding to approx. 500,000 applications. Its counterpart Mexico has over 1,200,000.

INAPI notes that it will update the data every month.
