THE BAHAMA JOURNAL AS THE NEW GAZETTE FOR TRADE MARKS

Apr 25, 2013

Previously when applications for the registration of trade mark, patent and design copyright applications were accepted by the Registrar, they were advertised in the Official Gazette Bahamas (Supplement Part III) which, among other areas, provides booklet editions dedicated solely to IP publications. The format and medium regarding trade marks has changed as publications of this information will now appear in the Bahama Journal newspaper. The archival durability and quality are not of the same standard that practitioners had become accustomed to. Based on this, the electronic availability of the Gazette is of importance.
