Publication of Designs by the Trademarks Registry

Over the years, efforts have always been on the publication of only trademarks in the Trademarks, Patents and Designs Journal published by the Registry of Trademarks, Patents and Designs. In what can be described as a trail blazer since the publication of the journal in Nigeria, the Registrar of Trademarks published both patents and industrial designs in the journal published on 31st December 2013. This is indeed a welcomed development in an attempt to revolutionize the practice and procedure of the registering designs and trademarks in Nigeria. We hope the momentum would be sustained.
