Colombia joins international trademark cooperation
20 June 2012
On 29 August this year Colombia officially accedes to what is commonly known as the Madrid System, the international trademark cooperation system that is administered by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO). Colombia is the 87th nation to sign up to the system.
The Madrid system offers a cost effective means of protecting trademarks internationally. By filing just one single application, it is possible to protect a trademark in as many of the soon 87 contracting countries as required.
