Senate Passes Madrid Protocol International Trademark Treaty


INTA is informing its members that the United States Senate passed the advice and consent resolution for the Madrid Protocol, an International treaty allowing for easier filing of trademark applications in multiple jurisdictions.  The next step for the Protocol is the promulgation of rules by the USPTO.   In addition, the U.S. must deposit its instrument of accession with WIPO.  These and other steps are expected to take approximately one year to complete.
