Brazil joins the International Trademark Registration system

A few days ago, on June 26, 2019, Brazil signed and thereby joined the Madrid Protocol for International Trademarks. Brazil becomes the 106th country in the world to become part of the international treaty.

The Madrid System is a key component of protecting marks internationally, offering a convenient and cost-effective solution for brand owners worldwide. With its designation process, foreign companies and trademark owners can seek trademark protection through the Madrid System when selling their products and services in the applied country.

The Brazilian Trademark Office has announced that it will enter into effect on October 1st 2019.
