IP's rockin' in Rwanda
Only a few short days ago Afro-IP was pleased to make available to its readers the full text of Rwanda's new intellectual property statute (see earlier post here). Now it seems Rwanda is the name on everyone's lips. By way of evidence, Afro Leo instances this article by Kaitlin Mara ("New Rwanda IP Policy Taps Information For Development") on the ever-excellent Intellectual Property Watch weblog. This article reviews Rwanda's new IP policy (see this 29-page document from the Ministry of Trade and Industry here) and strikes an encouragingly upbeat note.
