Day to day, intellectual property is becoming a more valuable asset to its owners.  The development of a trademark, patents, copyrights and software; its launching and positioning in the market, its innovations, intellectual property inventions or rights on a human creation deserve to be protected.  All these efforts must be insured against dishonest uses by third parties that have not invested anything and solely wish to profit from other people's work.

Gold Service can assist you preparing and negotiating trademark, patent, copyright and software license agreements.

What is a trademark?

A trademark is any sign, word or combination of words along with any other graphic means or material which is susceptible to clearly distinguish products, merchandise or services of the same species or class, but of different title, by means of its special characters.

In El Salvador, a trademark certificate has a 10 year valid term, which can be renewed indefinitely by fulfilling the corresponding legal requirements on other equal terms.
