Previously in our blog, we reported that the Mexican Senate published a bill to amend the Industrial Property Law to introduce an opposition system for trademarks and explained the key aspects of the trademark opposition system according to the bill.

The amendment must be published in the Official Gazette and will enter into force three months after its publication.
