Thailand joins the Madrid treaty

WIPO’S International trademark registration offers the possibility of affordable trademark protection abroad. Almost a hundred countries have joined already. The latest newcomer is Thailand.

From November 7th 2017, it is no longer necessary to go through the rather costly procedure of filing for a national trademark in Thailand. The large amount of Asian counties that joined the treaty lately is remarkable.
