Indonesia joints the Madrid System

Madrid SystemThe Government of Indonesia has deposited its instrument of accession to the Madrid Protocol with WIPO’s Director General, making Indonesia the 100th member of the Madrid Union.

The Protocol will enter into force for Indonesia on January 2, 2018.

Starting January 2, local brand owners in Indonesia can file a single international application under the Madrid System to protect their marks in the territories of the System’s other members.

The deposit, made by H.E. Dr. Yasonna Laoly, Minister for Law and Human Rights, includes declarations under Article 5(2)(b) of the Protocol (extension of refusal period to 18 months) and Rule 20bis(6)(b) of the Common Regulations (recording of licenses in the International Register has no effect in Indonesia).

The Madrid System is a convenient and cost-effective solution for registering and managing trademarks worldwide. Users file a single application and pay one set of fees to apply for protection in up to 116 countries. They modify, renew or expand their global trademark portfolio through one centralized system.

Members of the Madrid System meet annually in the Working Group and the Madrid Union Assembly to discuss various matters, with the aim to improve the Madrid System for all users.

    The new EU trade mark Regulation enters into force on March 23rd. As a result, the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) will change its name to the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

    The amending Regulation also revises the fees payable to the Office, including an overall reduction in their amounts, particularly in the case of trade mark renewal fees. On 23.3. 2016, the Office’s online application forms and fee calculator will be automatically updated to reflect the new system.
    From its base in Alicante, Spain, OHIM has processed more than 1.3 million Community trade mark applications in 23 EU languages, from nearly every country and region in the world, since 1996.

    The Amending Regulation was published on 24 December 2015 and is part of the EU trade mark reform legislative package that also includes the replacement of the existing EU Trade Mark Directive (Directive 2008/95/EC of the European Parliament and the Council).

    OHIM is the EU’s largest decentralised agency. It is entirely self-financed, receiving no funding from the EU Budget. As well as managing the Community trade mark and the registered Community design (RCD), it works in collaboration with the EU national and regional IP offices to build a stronger IP system across the EU for the benefit of users.
