Libya: New Official Name
December 16, 2011
After the long period of unrest that the “Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya” (Libya) witnessed, a number of changes occurred. One of the most important adjustments worth mentioning would be the change of the country’s official name from “Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya” to the more commonly known name (now official) “Libya”. However, the country’s international code remains the same (LY). Applicants should take note of this change when submitting official documents, including powers of attorney, at the country’s Trademark and Patent Offices.
