International trademark protection

In principle, trademarks can be registered in any country worldwide, eg as a Japanese or Brazilian brand, at the respective trademark offices.

IR mark (WIPO)

Example: A holder of a German trademark would like to extend its protection to Liechtenstein, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Poland. In this case, an application for international registration will be filed with WIPO in Geneva on the basis of the German mark (basic mark).

In order to enable applicants to register trademarks faster and more cheaply, a large number of countries, including most of the countries of Western and Eastern Europe, have become a special association for the international registration of trademarks (IR trademarks), the so-called Madrid Agreement about the international registration of trademarks and the Protocol of the Madrid Agreement.

Thus, with the IR brand, brand protection can be achieved in many countries at a relatively low cost with a single application.

The Madrid Agreement and the Protocol make it possible to submit a single application for international trademark registration to the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) in Geneva, instead of a large number of national filing procedures. The prerequisite for the application for international registration is that the applicant has a so-called basic mark in a Contracting State.

The audit is the same as for individual national trademark applications. Accordingly, in each claimed country, contradictions based on prior rights can be raised. In each country, the respective trademark office can check the brand for absolute grounds for refusal.

The protection period is 10 years and can then be extended as often as desired.

* Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands have a single European case law and trademark registration office (Benelux Office). Under the Madrid Agreement, trademark protection is claimed as if it were a country (Benelux). The protection therefore causes only a fee.

** The Netherlands Antilles belonged to the territory of the Netherlands, to which Belgian trade mark law does not apply. There is a separate trademark and trademark office. Protection is granted through its own extension of the protocol.
