Trademark Opposition in the Andean Community
Trisk Motor AG., a German SME producing spare parts for vehicles, is introducing its business in the Latin American market. In order to do so, they registered their trademark “TriskMotor” (Wordmark) in Peru, Argentina and Brazil for the Class 12 from Nice Classification.
On the other hand, Auto Pirámide S.A., a company from Ecuador devoted to the commercialization of national spare parts for vehicles, with great success across the country, filed an application for trademark registration for “TryssMotor” (Wordmark) in Ecuador to identify goods in Class 12 from Nice Classification.
As soon as the trademark application is published by the IEPI (Ecuadorian Trademark Office), Trisk Motor’s IP lawyers from Peru detected it, informing their clients about a possible likelihood of confusion if the trademark is granted to Auto Pirámide S.A.
