News: Implementation of trademark filing in Chili for both goods and services
In Chili, it is now possible to file one trademark application for a trademark designating both products and services through a single form.
In case of conflict, against your trademark or based on it, it will no longer be compulsory to divide the trademark into a trademark for services and a trademark for goods. However, this ability will remain possible. Each divisional application will keep its filing date and, if any, its priority date, however, it would be necessary to pay again the fees relative to a new trademark application.
The importance of this possibility to file trademark for both goods and services is essentially interesting from a financial point of view since there will be solely one filing and renewal fee, if no divisional demand is applied.
