There are two ways of extending your trademark protection to an international level:
Submitting a trademark to the World Intellectual Property Organisation (OMPI) in Geneva via Madrid’s International Trademark Registration System offers you the possibility to protect your trademark in up to 89 countries. The registration will have the same effect as if the trademark were registered directly in each of the selected countries.
This registration procedure is easier and saves costs. Rather than applying for separate protection in each country, the owner achieves diverse protection of his or her rights and, among other benefits, joint registration maintenance..
National trademarks in foreign countries
In order to register trademarks in countries that are not members of international treaties, national applications must be filed in the trademark offices of the countries of interest.
When carrying out such projects, INGENIAS relies on an extensive network of local partners who provide us with their best possible assistance in our client’s affairs, guaranteeing a top-quality service.
