Many people are curious how they can protect their trademark in other countries. While there is no such thing as a “global trademark” or “international trademark”, the closest option is to file a trademark application under the Madrid Protocol with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). In such a manner, you would need to file only a single application and select which countries you are most interested in.
Currently, there are 124 countries worldwide that participate in the Madrid System and each country carries a separate filing fee (per class). Click here for a complete list of participating countries.
