Mauritius: IP alive and well ...

Although it is the only known home of the famously extinct dodo, Mauritius is also home to a fairly fully-fledged intellectual property regime which has recently been summarised in this extremely useful article in International Law Office by Malcolm Moller and Gilbert Noel (Appleby). The survey covers both substantive and procedural IP law, as well as describing the features of Mauritius's registration system. The authors add:
"Legislation on industrial property in Mauritius is undergoing review. The government's ambition is to enhance a legal environment that keeps abreast with international, constantly evolving trends, thus making Mauritius a platform with a sound legal framework to protect the IP rights of internationally well-known brands".
