Singapore TLT (as it now seems to be known)

OHIM's Jessica Lewis has drawn the IPKat's attention to a very useful WIPO web page here that features new WIPO documents. It contains confirmation that the Singapore revision of the Trademark Law Treaty has been adopted by the conference by a load of countries listed here. It also has a draft text here and lots more besides. Many thanks, Jessica!

IP's all happening in Turkmenistan

7 June 2006 is a red letter day for IP in Turkmenistan. On that date the Caucasian former USSR republic steps up its commitment to the international community by implementing the Vienna Agreement Establishing an International Classification of the Figurative Elements of Marks, the Nice Agreement Concerning the International Classification of Goods and Services for the Purposes of the Registration of Marks and the Locarno Agreement Establishing an International Classification for Industrial Designs.

But ... it won't be till 7 March 2007 that Turkmenistan implements the Strasbourg Agreement Concerning the International Patent Classification.
