The Iraqi authorities are currently seeking views of IP experts and lawmakers on the newly drafted Trademarks and Geographical Indications Law in the country. The proposed draft was published among IP professionals and is being discussed so that a general opinion including all the relevant details may be formed. This helps the Iraqi authorities ensure that the proposed draft meets its regulatory objectives and does not have unintended consequences.

Once the draft is finalized, a committee of experts will review the latest amendments introduced during the legislative process in order to issue the final comprehensive Law. The main features of the subject law will be reported to you shortly.
