Digital revolution in Africa: ARIPO unveils groundbreaking free IP database (World Trademark Review)

The move is a groundbreaking one in Africa, as it represents a significant step forward in the digitisation of African IP data, especially in terms of easy-to-access search functionality, and should be on the radar of rights holders across the world.”
