West Bank: IP Gazette Introduced

May 11, 2011

All types of official notifications in the West Bank including IP related matters used to be published in the Palestinian Facts Journal. However, following ministerial decision number 4, issued on February 14, 2011, Articles 32 and 34 of Trademark Law No. 1 of 1952 have been amended. Based on this amendment, all intellectual property updates will be published in a new journal called “Industrial Property Gazette”. More specifically, the new journal will include all IP related matters only. Having an IP Gazette means that publication of accepted applications in the West Bank is expected to be more frequent and systematic. This IP Gazette was released due to the efforts of the Minister of National Economy in West Bank. It is worth noting that the first issue of this Gazette has already been released.
