International Trademark Protection
By Elliot Zimmerman on Thursday, November 18, 2004 - 05:45 AM
The U.S. has been a party to the Madrid System, which allows international registration of marks with a single application in the U.S. PTO, since November 2, 2003. The Madrid System is governed by the Madrid Protocol (1891) and WIPO.

As a prerequisite to obtaining an international registration in the U.S. PTO under the Madrid System, the mark must be pending or registered in the U.S. PTO. Subsequently, international registration can be made, prosecuted and approved in the U.S. PTO. Once the mark is internationally registered, additional countries can be added as they become parties to the Madrid System, or the owner of the mark starts using the mark in new countries which are already members. The international registration lasts for 10 years, and can be renewed for additional 10 year periods by paying a single fee to the U.S. PTO.

Note: Mexico and Canada are not members of The Madrid System.
