what you need to know

DESIGNS
The Trademarks, Commercial Indications, Trade Names, Geographical Indications, and Industrial Designs & Models Law no. 9 of 2002 came into force on September 2002, however, the authorities have not yet established the necessary office for receiving design applications, nor have they drafted the implementing regulations yet. As an alternative measure, protection may be sought out by publishing cautionary notices at regular intervals in local newspapers. Such notices could have legal value when submitted in court, in the event of infringement, thereby claiming ownership of the design and alerting third parties against further infringement
