Farewell, fee irregularities -- and hello, streamlined e-Renewal
"Say Goodbye to Fee Irregularities with Madrid e-Renewal" is the cheerful title of WIPO's latest Madrid News bulletin. If you want to know what this fond farewell is all about, look no further. We have reproduced the full text of the bulletin below:
We understand the value of your brand…and your time [we should jolly well hope so, after all the time and effort that MARQUES has expended in trying to get the message through]. As part of ongoing efforts to streamline our e-services, we’ve changed the Madrid e-Renewal system to help minimize the risk of fee-related irregularities.

Madrid System, fees,
Starting Thursday, July 6, 2017 [that's yesterday, if you are reading this today, or next week if you are still living in the past ...], online requests for renewal are available three months prior to the expiry of your international trademark registration. After paying through the e-Renewal system, your request will not be affected by any subsequent fee changes. This means you can predict the cost of your renewal with greater accuracy and certainty.
