Afro-IP chats to authors of Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights in Africa on Afro-Live

Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights in Africa by Marius Schneider and Vanessa Ferguson was published by Oxford University Press in May 2020.

Filling a gap in the market, this is the first book dedicated to providing a detailed overview of the law and practice in relation to intellectual property rights enforcement in all 54 African countries. For the first time, a comprehensive manual on the conditions and procedures under which the civil and criminal courts, the police and customs take action with regard to counterfeit and pirated goods is publicly available.

The book fully explains civil and criminal enforcement procedures, as well as customs recordals. Clear structure makes information easy and quick to find. It has been written in plain English and accessible to lawyers and non-lawyers alike.

You can listen to the full interview with the authors over on the Afro-Live tab on the website or by clicking here

Afro Leo congratulates Marius and Vanessa on their endeavours. This book will be a valuable addition to anyone interested in Africa as a market for their goods or services, and globally as it addresses the transhipment of goods across Africa.
