WIPO REGISTRATIONS NOW COMPLETED
The International Federation of Sport Climbing is pleased to inform that all international registrations have now been completed after the final registration certificate from the United States Patent and Trademark Office was received.
In 2017, the IFSC entered into the process of registering its name and logo as a trademark with the Registration System of the World Intellectual Property Organisation. The objective was to better manage and protect the property rights attached to its name and logo, particularly within the leading markets across the globe. Registrations cover various countries all over the world including Australia, China, the European Union, Japan, Russia, South Korea, Switzerland and the USA.
WIPO's mission is to lead the development of a balanced and effective international IP system. The Madrid System is a centralized system for registering and managing trademarks worldwide for protection in up to 122 countries. The Madrid Union currently has 106 members, covering 122 countries. These members represent more than 80% of world trade, with potential for expansion as membership grows.
