MALAYSIA: Accession to Madrid Protocol Boosts Trademark Protection for Overseas Companies

Overseas businesses operating in the country will have enhanced trademark protection from 27 December this year when Malaysia officially becomes a signatory to the Madrid Protocol – an international agreement that now protects registered trademarks in 122 jurisdictions across the world.

In effect, the Protocol allows any company based in a signatory country to enjoy trademark protection across the territories of all other signatory countries once a single international application has been filed with the relevant national or regional Intellectual Property office. In addition to Malaysia, both Canada and Brazil have recently signed up to the agreement.
