As far as I am concerned I think The Madrid system is the primary international system for facilitating the registration of trademarks in multiple jurisdictions around the world. Any person or a legal entity having the necessary connection through an establishment, domicile or nationality of any Contracting Party, or of a Member State of an intergovernmental organization, can use the Madrid protocol in any manner.

The Madrid protocol is a marvelous tool for helping clients trademark fortification in other countries. Costs are able to be cut inside partially by using the Madrid protocol. The simplicity of usage renewals and assignment is a further benefit -- a diffident and a single form (in English) can update trademark records in dozen of countries.

It is an international treaty that allows a trademark owner to seek registration in any of the countries that have joined the Madrid Protocol by filing a single application, called an "international application."

INTRODUCTION
The system of international registration of marks is governed by two treaties: the Madrid
Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Marks
( referred as ‘Madrid Agreement’ in
brief), which dates from 1891, and the Protocol Relating to the Madrid Agreement ( hereinafter referred
as ‘Madrid Protocol’ in brief), which was adopted in 1989, entered into force on December 1, 1995, and
came into operation on April 1, 1996. Common Regulations under the Agreement and Protocol also came
into force on that date.
Under the Madrid Protocol, a mark can be protected in many jurisdictions by filing an application
for international registration. Such application is presented to the International Bureau of the World
Intellectual Property Organization at Geneva, through the office of origin i.e. the trademark office of the
applicant.
Where the application complies with the applicable requirements, the mark is recorded in the
International Register and published in the WIPO Gazette of International Marks. The International
Bureau then notifies each Contracting Party in which protection has been requested whether in the
international application or subsequently.
Each designated Contracting Party has the right to refuse protection of mark by so notifying to the
International Bureau within the time limits specified in the Madrid Protocol.
Unless such a refusal is notified to the International Bureau within the applicable time limit, the
protection of the mark in each designated Contracting Party is the same as if it had been registered by the
Office of that Contracting Party.
An international registration remains dependent on the mark registered or applied for in the
Office of origin, for a period of five years from the date of its registration. If, and to the extent that, the
basic registration ceases to have effect within this five-year period, the international registration is no
longer protected.
An international registration subsists for the period of 10 years from the date of its registration
and it may be renewed further by paying renewal fee before the expiry of every 10 years.
All changes subsequent to the international registration, such as a change in name and/or address
