Colombia commits as TLT hits 50

Here's some good news for trade mark owners and their professional representatives: by TLT Notification No. 56, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has informed the world that the Government of the Republic of Colombia last week deposited its instrument of accession to the Trademark Law Treaty. The TLT will enter into force for Colombia on 13 April 2012.

This will bring the number of active participants in the TLT to a nice round 50. The region's participation in the TLT is growing: Colombia joins Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru -- but there's still no commitment from the regional superpowers.
