“IP Litigation in Africa”

IP Litigation in Africa” was an item in the WIPO magazine from February this year.  It includes highlights from IP disputes that have recently taken place Africa.  In the introduction Darren Olivier (co-founder of Afro-IP blog) says:

“IP dispute resolution is alive and well in most economically vibrant economies on the continent”

Examples are from Ethiopia, South Africa, Namibia, Kenya, Uganda and Nigeria and deal with patent, trademark and copyright cases.  We often read about lack of enforcement in the region, so it’s very welcome to see an article of this kind!
