Trademark registration search in UAE
Before applying for registration, you should make a search to avoid conflict between your trademark and older trademarks.
You can register your brand as a trademark or as a copyright in UAE. Both certificates will have the same legal power and will protect your brand. There`s some difference in process of registration, registering authorities and law enforcement.
We recommend to register your brand as a trademark if you want to work with ministries and official authorities and participate in state tenders. But if you just sale goods or services on the open market, you`d better register your brand as a copyright. It would be more efficient, cheaper and faster.
In accordance with UAE Federal Law (2002) Concerning Copyrights and Neighboring Rights copyright registration in UAE is possible only if you have the copyright object. It should meet the following requirements: your copyright object should be a result of intellectual work and expressed in any objective form.
