Libyan trade mark office gets back to normal

Via the latest newsletter of NJQ & Associates comes some information concerning Libya. NJQ reports as follows:
Please be advised that the Libyan Trademark Office (LTMO) is now fully operational and will soon start to issue registration certificates, renewal certificates, and recordals certificates (assignments, mergers, and changes of name and address).

We are listing below statistics issued by LTMO representing the number of applications filed from 2002 to March 2014:

YEARNUMBER OF FILED APPLICATIONS

20042135
20053337
20063831

20101920
2011296
2012NONE
20133499

It was noticed that recently the LTMO has improved its operations and is trying to accelerate the registration procedures.
This must be encouraging information for those seeking to protect their legal interests in Libya, as well as for all those who look forward to seeing the country make some economic progress after its recent travails.
