Re:Latest Developments in Gaza and Iran

JAH & Co. IP would like to inform all our clients and associates that the Trademark Registry in Gaza by virtue of Ministerial Decision No. 16 of 2010, issued on August 1, 2010, it is no longer possible to file new trademark applications in class 32 covering beers and lager, or renew trademarks which had been previously registered. The notification reaffirms the prohibition of registration of beers trademarks under the said jurisdiction.

Please be advised that the Iranian Trademark Office has issued notification to the effect that the requirement to legalize the certificate of incorporation/commercial registry certificate/business license for trademark registration is longer in force and instead a notarized copy or a copy certified by the company registration office shall suffice.
