Trademarks in Latin Script in Iraq

22-Apr-2018 | Source : AG-IP News | Visits : 4790
BAGHDAD - The Iraqi Trademarks Office recently announced that it becomes possible to file trademark applications in Latin letters, and it is not necessary to submit the Arabic transliteration of the same trademark.
According to AGIP, this new practice is expected to provide protection for the transliteration of the registered trademark, without having to file a separate application of the same trademark. 
From our experience though we advise our clients to add the Arabic transliteration of the trademark to avoid any problems that might arise in case third parties would register confusingly similar Arabic transliteration.
