Madrid System Web Based Services
26 Jun 2012
The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has recently developed a suite of online tools to help brand owners manage their international trade marks.
The Madrid system, used by hundreds of Australian businesses each year to lodge trade mark applications in key markets around the globe including China, Japan and United States, has now been enhanced with the following new services for international trade mark holders:
- Madrid Real-time Status (MRS) - allows you to access the status in real time of your trade mark documents being processed by WIPO. This allows you to see what is happening to your request at any time in the process
- Madrid Electronic Alert (MEA) - is a free "watch service" for monitoring the status of certain trade mark registrations. Subscribers can receive daily email alerts when changes are recorded in the International Trade marks register.
- Madrid Portfolio Manager (MPM) - allows holders of international registrations and their representatives to access their international trade mark portfolios, helpful when submitting new requests in the WIPO international trade mark registry
To access the new services, you need to register a WIPO user account linked to your email address, all services are free and video tutorials are available on each product.
