During its XVIII Congress at Punta del Este, the Inter-American Association of Intellectual Property (ASIPI for its acronym in Spanish) recently appointed our firm’s IP head partner, Enrique A. Díaz, as a member (3rd Director) of its Executive Committee. ASIPI is the first intellectual property regional organism in the American continent. It was founded in April 1964 after an international meeting of 25 experts from 17 countries that later derived in a Convention held at Mexico City for its creation. Currently, ASIPI is an organization comprised of over 1,000 members from over 50 countries around the world. ASIPI acts as an observing member of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and also participates in other international forums, such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
