Cape Verde publishes first IP Bulletin

Via Inventa International and a tweet from the excellent @filemot comes news that Cape Verde [on which see Kingsley Egbuonu's profile here] has issued its first ever IP bulletin.  According to this news item:
"... This is the first big step for the new IP Office (IPICV – Instituto da Propriedade Intelectual de Cabo Verde), which will soon be installed as a separate Office from the ministry of commerce and industry, and focused only on Trademark, Patent and Author’s Rights registrations. 
This new bulletin comprises the publication of the first 1,200 trademark applications that were filed in the country, along with several copyright registrations for artistic and literary art work".
Sadly this bulletin does not yet appear to be available online -- but at least it's a start.
