IPKAT's Transhipment Update - Nokia
Following a tweet from Jeremy on Friday Afro-IP made reference to a transhipment case that has split opinion in Europe. If Europe makes transhipment of counterfeit goods unlawful, Africa may become (even) more appealing to counterfeiters moving counterfeit goods around the globe. If transhipment is not unlawful in Europe then African states may take its lead. The IPKAT blog provides this useful update.
