A convenient way to expand your trade mark protection, the Madrid System operated by the World Intellectual Property Organisation allows a trade mark owner to file in one or more of its signatory countries through one application.
There are over 100 signatories to the Madrid System including the majority of Europe, Africa and some key countries in Asia.
It has been announced this week that Chile will be the latest country to join the Madrid system.
This now opens the door for those who wish to file in Chile, basing the filing on an existing registration in the UK.
