Thailand to Become Member of Madrid Protocol

by Admin on September 15, 2017

According to Bangkok Post,Thailand will soon become the 99th member of the Madrid Protocol, a system that allows people to register trademarks in multiple countries with only one application.

Currently, if a trademark owner in Thailand wants to register that trademark in five different countries, they would have to make five separate applications in five languages, and pay five fees in different currencies.

Chaninat & Leeds’ attorneys are experts in intellectual property law and Thailand trademark law.

Under the Madrid Protocol, this isn’t the case. As long as the country you want to protect your trademark in is one of the other 98 registered countries, you can file a single international application at the Department of Intellectual Property in Bangkok.

Thailand will become an official member of the Madrid Protocol on Novermber 7th 2017.
