Protect your mark in today's global economy by registering your mark abroad. This is an essential step to conducting business outside the United States. In addition to applying for protection in the United States, you should consider seeking trademark protection in other countries. By filing an international application or applications in selected countries, you can safeguard your rights overseas, whether you are currently doing business abroad or are planning to in the future.
Your United States trademark registration will only protect you against others appropriating your mark within the borders of the United States. Your United States trademark registration will not enable you to prevent others from using your mark outside the United States.
Although more than 80 nations have adopted the Madrid Protocol, there are some significant exceptions: Canada and Mexico, for example, have yet to ratify the Protocol.
It is both possible and affordable to protect your trademark in countries that do not accept Madrid Applications. Our attorneys have been facilitating country-by-country trademark registration for many years and would be happy to discuss the process with you.
