More on OAPI and Biko
Following Jeremy's announcement on Monday that OAPI is joining Madrid, our colleague from Cameroon Aminou Ndala TITA also had this to say:
"...However, OAPI has not amended its trade mark law to recognize International Registrations, and it is unlikely to do so before 5 March 2015. Until the law is amended, International Registrations designating OAPI will not be enforceable until the law changes to recognize such trademarks. It is expected that the December session of its administrative council will address this pressing issue."
