IPvocate Africa is proud to announce that we have won a trade mark opposition adjudicated by the Ethiopian Intellectual Property Office. The Intellectual Property Office sided with our arguments that the registration of the litigious trade mark application would create a risk of confusion with the existing trade mark of our client.


Effective trade mark protection is possible in Ethiopia with IPvocate Africa, your reliable partner for protecting, managing and enforcing IP rights in Africa.


Did you know that:


Ethiopian trade mark applications are published in Amharic (the local language) in local newspapers and that it is the right holder who has to arrange for this publication.


Ethiopia is ranked as one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa for 2019 and 2020 by the International Monetary Fund and the African Development Bank.
