The International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI) Central American-Caribbean Regional Group conducted a survey with the aim of learning of any recent developments that have taken place in the CA-Caribbean region as well as identifying any opportunities for the improvement of Intellectual Property legislation in those jurisdictions.
The survey was conducted with firms and professionals of such region during the months of August and September, with questions focusing on the global Covid-19 pandemic and the measures taken by national judicial systems and IP Offices.
Once completed, the AIPPI CA-Caribbean Regional Group shared and discussed the results of the survey through an online Zoom event that helped firms and professionals to update on their legislations, needs and challenges, and to strengthen the membership of the AIPPI CA-Caribbean Regional Group ahead of the 2020 AIPP World Congress Online, which with enormous success was held free for AIPPI members and completely virtual from October 5 to 14, 2020.
During the Zoom event, Julián J. Bendaña-Aragón, President of the AIPPI CA-Caribbean Regional Group, highlighted the importance for a continued exchange between Central American and Caribbean IP professionals, in the context of a leading international organization dedicated to the development and improvement of laws for the protection of intellectual property. Such comments were supported by Gabriela Bodden, President Elect of the AIPPI CA-Caribbean Regional Group.
On behalf of the AIPPI CA-Caribbean Regional Group, Bendaña-Aragón and Bodden thanked all current members of the AIPPI CA-Caribbean Regional Group and called for all the IP industry of the region to get in touch with the group for future developments.
