Manage your Intellectual Property in Latin America

Cybersquatting in Colombia

The French company “Louis Pingouin” famous for their leather accessories (purse, shoes, wallets and others) has registered its trademark in almost all countries of Latin America, including Colombia.

Some months ago, the company decided to create a website targeting Colombia. When they tried to register the Domain Name (DN), the registration was denied since a Colombian company already registered the domain name www.louispingouin.co and used it to sell suitcases and schoolbags.
