Algeria Joins Madrid Protocol

Algeria Joins Madrid Protocol

As from the 31st of October, 2015 trademark applicants in Algeria will be able to make better use of the Madrid Protocol for the International Registration of Marks. The Algerian government placed its instrument of accession to the Madrid Protocol with the Director General of The World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) on the 31st of July this year.

In addition, all international filings will now be managed by the Madrid Protocol, which will greatly simplify international registrations.

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS: A new Trade Marks Act and a last chance to file UK-based applications

The House of Assembly of the British Virgin Islands has passed a new Trademarks Act on the 30th of April 2013. This legislative measure will bring extensive changes to Intellectual property in the region and it will effectively come into force on the 1st of September 2015. The implementation of the new act will substitute the current Trademarks Act (Cap. 158) dated all the way back to 1887 and the United Kingdom Trademarks Act (Cap. 157) of 1946. The Act will also end the current dual registration system, under the provisions of which an application may either be filed independently or based on a UK registration.
