No Longer Extension of Trademark Registrations to Kurdistan

The Trademarks Registrar of Kurdistan issued new directives suspending the legal extension of registered Iraqi trademarks to the Kurdistan region until further notice.

In lieu of this change in practice, trademark registration should be sought directly with the Kurdistan Trademark Office by filing a new trademark application. Before the new practice, it was possible to obtain legal protection by registering trademarks in Kurdistan if the owner of a registered trademark in Iraq wished to extend its protection to Kurdistan.
