Brazil’s government has taken the final steps for adherence to the Madrid Protocol streamlining trademark registration, monitoring and compliance, the government said Friday. The Brazilian Senate completed work on ratification of the Protocol earlier this week. Brazil’s trademark registration agency (INPI) has now published a timeline for full implementation, which will be achieved by October. The Protocol allows for simultaneous trademark registration in 120 countries accounting for 80% of world trade. It is designed to cut registration wait times and registration and monitoring costs.
