Benin takes the slow route to Singapore

By Singapore Notification No. 31: Singapore Treaty on the Law of Trademarks, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) announces the accession of the Republic of Benin to that important and increasingly popular Treaty.

There's going to be a delay, though.  Since Benin is a Member State of the African Intellectual Property Organization (OAPI), the Treaty will enter into force in Benin three months after the date on which OAPI deposits its own instrument of accession, in accordance with Articles 26 and 28 of the Treaty.

More on Benin (but not very much more ...) here.
