Intellectual Property

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has a comprehensive legal framework for protecting intellectual property (IP) rights. The following are some of the main laws and regulations that govern IP in the UAE:

  • Federal Law No. 37 of 1992 on Trademarks (Trademark Law): This law governs the protection and registration of trademarks, service marks, trade names, and logos in the UAE.
  • Federal Law No. 7 of 2002 on Copyrights (Copyright Law): This law governs the protection and registration of copyrights for literary, artistic, and scientific works in the UAE.
  • Federal Law No. 44 of 1992 on Patents (Patent Law): This law governs the protection and registration of patents for inventions in the UAE.
  • Decree No. 53 of 2006 on the Protection of New Plant Varieties: This law governs the protection of plant varieties in the UAE.
  • Decree No. 58 of 2007 on the Protection of Undisclosed Information (Trade Secrets Law): This law governs the protection of confidential business information, trade secrets, and know-how in the UAE.

In addition to these laws, the UAE is also a signatory to several international treaties and conventions on IP, including the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property, the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works, and the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).

To keep pace with advances in technology and changing business practices, laws and regulations pertaining to intellectual property are frequently updated. It is important that you ensure that your IP rights are properly protected and enforced in the UAE.
