ARIPO's latest newsletter
Afro Leo received a welcome email containing ARIPO's third newsletter publication for this year. Previous issues are available on the ARIPO website under "publications".
Catching this Leo's eye is a fascinating article on the potential protection of Shea-butter as a geographical indication in Ghana and beyond and an excellent summary and commentary on the impact of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement for IPRS from an African perspective, both by Mcdave Appiah.
The call from the editorial is a strong one too - the promotion of access to free online patent databases among African universities and development institutions.
