Brazil joins Madrid Protocol
Brazil submitted its accession document to the Madrid Protocol to WIPO on 2 July. This means the Madrid System will enter into force for Brazil on 2 October 2019.
With Brazil’s accession, the Madrid System will cover 121 countries, including all of the world’s 10 largest economies.
Read more about the accession in WIPO’s announcement.
MARQUES has long championed the Madrid Protocol in Brazil, sending delegations of members to the country to discuss the benefits of joining. Read more in this recent blog post.
Eduardo Machado of the MARQUES International Trade Mark Law and Practice Team said that discussions are continuing regarding whether there will be a requirement to have a Brazilian attorney appointed for every application.
The news comes soon after the European Union and Mercosur (which comprises Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay) signed a trade agreement. This agreement spans a wide range of topics including geographical indications.
