Podcast: Adams & Adams discuss oppositions based on well-known rights in Africa
Play • 27 min

In the first of a three-part podcast series by Adams & Adams on doing business within the dynamic IP world of Africa, experts Alissa Naran and Nicole Smalberger talk to Managing IP about oppositions based on well-known rights in the continent.

Encompassing 54 countries, Africa is the world’s second-most populous continent. Remarkably, 60% of this population is under the age of 25, presenting the opportunity for a new generation of increasingly-educated business leaders to shape financial development and economics. As opportunities and resources become widely available across the region, trademark applicants wishing to protect their intellectual property will have more questions.

The experts discuss the challenges of relying on well-known marks in the continent, explore the pan-African legal developments that companies should be aware of, and consider the common mistakes that trademark owners may encounter.
