Trademark Registration and Madrid Protocol

Under the Madrid Protocol, you can now seek expeditious registration of your trademark in over 90 countries worldwide, with a single filing in one language. The Madrid Protocol also simplifies the management of your trademark, since it is possible to centrally record subsequent changes or to renew the registration through a single step. 

While the Madrid system provides a cost-efficient way of securing an international portfolio, there are many strategic considerations for using the Madrid system. For example, the dependency rule, limitation on assignment of an International Registration, etc.

Trademark owners should seek professional advice in these strategic considerations in order to avoid potential pitfalls.
