商標登録insideNews: 2020 New Regulations under the Madrid Protocol and Simplified Renewal of International Registrations | WIPO

Simplified renewal of international registrationsInternational registrations are valid for ten years and can be renewed directly with WIPO. Amendments to Rule 30 of the Regulations under the Protocol simplify renewals considerably.For Contracting Parties that have declared for an individual fee per class, the renewal fee will be calculated taking into account only the number of classes for which protection has been granted.The simplification means that holders of international registrations who have been granted partial protection and are appealing such decision will no longer be required to pay individual fees for classes that are not protected upon renewal.Consequently, item 4 of the renewal form MM11 and the corresponding option in e-Renewal will be removed because they will no longer be required. Item 4 was used to give instructions to renew the international registration for all the goods and services with respect to a Contracting Party where the mark had been only partially protected. The new MM11 form will be available for download as from February 1, 2020.
