Colombia and Madrid: the final Act?

lawyers and their clients celebrate the Senate vote
The 15 January 2011 issue of the INTA Bulletin (Vol. 66 No. 2), which INTA members can now enjoy on INTA's handsomely refurbished website, reports some good news for brand owners in "Colombian Senate Approves Bill 061/2010, Moving Closer to Madrid Accession".

It seems that last month a plenary session of the Colombian Senate approved Bill 061/2010, which calls for accession to the Madrid Protocol. This is a reintroduced version of an earlier bill which received support from INTA members.
