Sudan – SOUTH SUDAN
We are aware that intellectual property laws are yet to be enacted in the new born state of South Sudan. However, a temporary trademark protection system under which trademarks may only be “reserved” has been established. All trademarks reserved will be registered as soon as a trademark law is promulgated and an official trademark register is established. It is not yet known if the protection period will be calculated from the reservation date or from the date of entering the trademark details in the new registration.
