Cape Verde gets new IP Office

The Instituto da Propriedade Intelectual de Cabo Verde (the Cape Verde Intellectual Property Office) has been legislated into existence by Cape Verde Government Resolution No. 25/2010 of 24 May 2010.

Under this law, which came into effect from 3 June 2010, the IP services provided by the Direcção Geral da Indústria e Comércio, together with those included in the Sistema de Registos (Registration system) for Copyright and Neighbouring Rights were transferred to the new office. If you happen to find yourself in Cape Verde, the office is located in the capital, Praia. Its main goal is the promotion, defence and protection of intellectual property both at home and abroad.
