Morocco bound for IP treaty accessions

While much of North Africa has been embroiled in political turmoil and military action, Morocco has been quietly but effectively enhancing its international intellectual property commitments. According to a media release from the World Intellectual Property Organizarion (WIPO) today,
* Budapest Notification No. 273 announces the accession by the Kingdom of Morocco to the Budapest Treaty on the International Recognition of the Deposit of Microorganisms for the Purposes of Patent Procedure with effect from 20 July 2011.

* WCT Notification No. 77 confirms Morocco's accession to the WIPO Copyright Treaty, also with effect from 20 July 2011.

* WPPT Notification No. 80 proclaims Morocco's accession to the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty, again from the same date.
