Friday update

A summary of recent Zimbabwe case law involving (amongst other index heads) trade marks, copyright and passing off has been published by Saflii here.

Denise Nicholson, Wits Copyright Services Librarian and founder of ACA2K blog site dedicated to probing the relationship between national copyright environments and access to knowledge in African countries, has informed Afro-IP of research updates on the ACA2K site for South Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique and Uganda.

Afro Leo, in considering David's post immediately below, would like to know if this case may set a precedent for how all rights (ie including trade marks) will be treated by ARIPO member states (those who have ratified the protocols) and is ARIPO equipped to handle revocation claims?
