Spanish to be recognized as an official language of the Madrid system.

As from September 1, 2008, Spanish has become an official language of the Madrid system for the international registration of trade marks.

Image: Portrait of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, writer of the novel "El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha", considered the most influential work of literature to emerge from the entire literary canon in Spanish language.

The Madrid system was established in 1891, and operates under the Madrid Agreement (1891) and the Madrid Protocol (1989). It is administered by the International Bureau of WIPO.


With the official recognition of Spanish, almost 400 million people would be able to use the Madrid sytem in their native language.
