Zimbabwe follows Gambia down the Madrid Protocol 18-month route

Yesterday this weblog conveyed the news that Gambia, a recent adherent to the Madrid Protocol, was to extend the period within which it must reject international trade mark oppositions if they are not to be automatically allowed from 12 to 18 months under Article 5(2) of the Protocol. WIPO has also announced that Zimbabwe is doing the exact same thing, only with effect from 7 January 2016. You can check out the WIPO announcement here.
