Thailand will become the 99th member of the Madrid Protocol when this system comes into effect in the country on November 7, 2017. The Madrid System will allow trademark owners in Thailand to file a single international application designating other members under the Protocol, as well as enabling other member states’ trademark owners to designate Thailand to seek protection here.
Given this significant development in Thailand’s intellectual property landscape, Tilleke & Gibbins is holding a lunch seminar on “Madrid Protocol: New Options for Managing Your Global Trademark Portfolio” on Thursday, November 16, at our Bangkok office. Featuring a presentation from Somboon Earterasarun of the Tilleke & Gibbins IP group, the Thai-language program will provide an overview of:
- Trademark filing via the Madrid System as compared to the national route for trademark protection in foreign countries
- Opportunities and challenges in implementing the Madrid System
- Strategies for optimizing your portfolio through the different registration routes available to you
