Bahrain: A New Trade Name Law Expected Soon

February 11, 2011

A draft law on the protection of trade names is currently under discussion by the Bahraini Parliament. The draft sets out several conditions on the protection of trade names and imposes sanctions on those who breach the provisions of the law. We list below the main features of this law:

– The new trade name shall not be similar to a well-known trade name nor to any other registered name.
– The new trade name shall not include any political, military or religious content.
– The new trade name shall not refer to any regional, Arab or international organization.
– The new use of the trade name shall not create any confusion with other names of company owners or product distributors.
