Starting today, a trademark owner in Brazil can file a Madrid Protocol application to pursue protection in one or more Offices outside of Brazil.
And starting from today, a trademark owner outside of Brazil can file a new Madrid Protocol application designating Brazil.
I had previously posted that starting from today, a trademark owner outside of Brazil who already has an International Registration can file a Subsequent Designation to Brazil. This is stated too broadly. Brazil’s Instrument of Accession includes an Article 14(5) Declaration, which provides that a “sub des” can only be filed with respect to Brazil for an IR that was registered on or after today, that is, on or after October 2, 2019.
The two-letter code for Brazil is “BR”.
