Colombia edges towards Madrid Protocol

The INTA Bulletin, Vol.64, No.14 (1 August 2009) mentions how, this June, the Second Commission of the Senate approved Government Bill No. 277 of 2009, which would enable Colombia to sign up to the increasingly-popular WIPO-administered Madrid Protocol -- the most efficient means of achieving international protection for a registered trade mark. Further parliamentary debates are required before the Bill can become law.

From the current list of 78 members of the Madrid Protocol it appears that no Latin American country has yet acceded.
