On a national basis, Trademark Registration Application;
One of the types of applications that can be made so that the mark is valid outside the country of application is the application on a nationwide basis. The application is a type of application that can be made by each country's own system and its own agents on a national basis. However, since the cost of each country varies according to the brand application process and the registration process, it is not preferable to apply for more than one country.
Trademark Application in Madrid Protocol (IR);
Due to the fact that trademark applications made on a national basis are difficult in terms of process and cost, the agreement made with the Madrid Protocol allows for the entry of the trademark in the member countries with only one application. In this regard, the cost resulting from individual applications in the countries has been reduced in a serious manner, and the research to be carried out separately by each country has also been shortened in one operation.
