A Comprehensive Guidance on Intellectual Property Law in United Arab Emirates

Thursday - July 04, 2024 (6:00 PM - 6:30 PM UAE Time)
(Live Online)

Intellectual property rights have always played a crucial role in driving innovation across different sectors. The legal framework governing IP offers both commercial and ethical protections, enabling creators to profit from their work while also establishing ownership over their inventions. This balance benefits both innovators and society as a whole. IP rights encompass a range of protections, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and designs. Registering these rights empowers creators and owners to capitalize on their intellectual property. Meanwhile, consumers can rest assured that they are purchasing products that are safe and authentic.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has committed itself to various international agreements that aim to protect and enforce intellectual property rights. These agreements include the Paris Convention, which deals with patents and trademarks, the Patent Cooperation Treaty for patents, the WIPO Convention, the TRIPS agreement, and the Gulf Cooperation Council for trademarks, among others. In order to uphold these commitments, the UAE has implemented its own intellectual property legislation. This legislation includes the Patents and Industrial Design Law number 44 of 1992, Trademarks law number 37 of 1992, and Copyright and Neighboring Rights Law number 40 of 1992.
