International Organizations in Which the United States Participates

INTER-AMERICAN TRADE-MARK REGISTRATION BUREAU

While the United States has been a member of the Union for the Protection of Industrial Property since 1887,1 it has never adhered to the arrangement for the international registration of trade-marks made at Madrid in 1901, and administered by that Union.

The Registration Bureau of Habana is an organization dealing only with American governments, and its powers are now derived from the conventions of August 20, 1910 (39 Stat. L. 1675), April 28, 1923 (44 Stat. L. 2494), and February 20, 1929 (46 Stat. L. 2907).

A convention concerning trade-marks was signed at the International Congress of South American States held in Montevideo in 1889.2 This convention was ratified by Argentina, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay. On March 3, 1890 the First International Conference of American States, in session at Washington, recommended that the convention be adopted by all American states.3

No immediate action resulted from the resolution of the first conference, but at the Second International Conference of American States, held at the city of Mexico in 1902, a treaty was signed covering patents, industrial drawings, models, and trade-marks. This was ratified by Guatemala, Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras, and Nicaragua, and adhered to by Cuba.4
