TRADEMARK UNDER MOROCCO LAW


In trademark, direct infringement occurs when without authorization of the owner a person uses a registered mark on or in connection with the sale, offering for sale, distribution or advertising of goods or services that is likely to cause confusion, or to cause mistake, or to deceive. When a mark is unregistered, direct infringement occurs when a person without authorization uses a mark in commerce in connection with goods or services that is likely to cause confusion, or to cause mistake, or to deceive as to the affiliation, connection, or association of such person with another person, or as to the origin, sponsorship, or approval of the goods or services identified by the mark.  See Law 17-97 for further details.



TRADEMARK REGISTRATION


            - Availability research

            - Trademark application before OMPIC (Morocco Patent and Trademark Office)

            - Opposition to infringing tradermark registration


The international classification of goods and services is applicable in Morocco since this ccountry is part of the Madrid Arrangment. Trademark application is examined by OMPIC (Moroccan Office of Industrial Property - www.ompic.ma). A Morocco registered trademark is valid for twenty years from the date of registration and renewable for additional twenty years periods.

Transfer of trademark rights must be registered with the Trademark Office within three months in order to be valid against third parties.

A registered trademark is vulnerable if there was no use of the mark in Morocco during five years immediately preceding the request for cancellation. Any interested party is entitled to demand the cancellation of any registered trademark before a civil court of Kingdom of Morocco.
