Madagascar fees rise next week
Afro Leo, who is prudent with his pennies, has just learned that Madagascar is hiking its official intellectual property fees as of next Monday, 1 July. This rise is in accordance with Ministerial Decree No. 12285/2013 of 1 June 2013. Fees are rising for all registered rights so, if you were thinking of filing there, or indeed asking the office to perform any other official action, try to get your application or request in by tomorrow.
