Appeals Procedure Changed


The new Director General of the Ethiopian registry has taken steps to ensure that appeals such as those dealing with the refusal of an application now take the form of a formal court hearing rather than a simple review of written submissions.

This change is in line with a 2012 government directive. This means that practitioners will now need to appear in person. It also means that the tribunal might invite other parties, such as the owner of a cited trade mark, to submit evidence or observations. It is expected that this step will result in more considered decisions.
