Intellectual Property update in Togo
Afro-IP has reported on various developments of practical significance in recent times, including posts here and here.
Afro-IP found a website for the copyright office in Togo -- though it contains very little, and basic, information. The situation could be worse: to be fair, we have seen some OAPI members (here, here and here) and which lack even a single web page.Kingsley tweets as @IPinAfrica
Like other countries in the continent, Togo has a diverse but rich culture and heritage here and here which require protection. It has produced one of finest in Africa – The late Paul Ahyi.
We hope to see Togo take intellectual property awareness seriously for the benefit of its future creators and innovators.
