WIPO Trade Mark and Patent Gazettes

In Update 260 published today, the WIPO announced online publication of the WIPO Gazette of International Marks, the official publication of the Madrid System for the International Registration of Trademarks. The Gazette contains all relevant data on new international trade mark registrations, renewals, subsequent designations and changes and other entries affecting international registrations.

Also online is the PCT Gazette which is accessible from the WIPO’s new “Patentscope” Patent and PCT Application portal. A particularly useful resource from this portal is the PCT newsletter which contains a table summarizing the type of protection within each contracting party. The table indicates whether “national” or regional (that is to say, European, Eurasian or OAPI) patents and utility models are available in a particular country. There is also a search facility on the portal.


About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
