IP in Chile: a handy summary

The IBLS Internet-Law News Portal has recently posted a useful English-language summary by Martha Arias of Chile's Industrial Property Law 19.039 of 1991. This article touches on the background to the law, its structure, the extent to which it is supplemented by other laws and its compliance with international treaties. After a summary of the procedure for obtaining intellectual property rights in Chile, there is some brief guidance concerning the registration of commercial brands and patent applications.
