Sudan picks date for its Madrid moment

By Madrid (Marks) Notification No. 186, the World Intellectual Property Organization has indicated the deposit by the Government of the Republic of the Sudan, on November 16, 2009, of its instrument of accession to the Madrid Protocol of 1989 on the international filing of trade marks. The Protocol will enter into force, with respect to Sudan, on 16 February 2010.

The only neighbour of Sudan -- Africa's largest country -- that has signed up to the Protocol so far is Egypt, where it has been in effect since 3 September of this year.
