My Lawyer

Marks registered in Sri Lanka are valid only in Sri Lanka. If you do business in other countries it is advisable for you to register the mark in those countries. You have to make applications in each country where you seek the protection under the respective national law. ( Sri Lanka is not a member of the Madrid System under which you may make one international application for all the member countries.) However, you can claim priority under the Paris Convention for the protection of Industrial Property in its member countries. ( within 6 months from the date of application in Sri Lanka).
