Adams & Adams Africa Update goes online
28 Jun 2021
Adams & Adams is excited to announce the launch of the 2021 Africa Update on a new online platform, replacing our regular Africa IP magazine. The new-look digital edition continues to be an invaluable source of information, insight and news related to Intellectual Property (IP) law across the continent.
Like the previous IP magazine and PDF version, Africa Update online is committed to covering recent developments from regional organisations, including ARIPO and OAPI, as well as focusing on what is happening in the field of IP in more than 30 African countries as part of our Africa Network. This includes key concerns and opportunities, as well as up-to-date facts and breaking news, now available at the touch of a button. Readers will also be able to enjoy a variety of interesting articles from our Africa Advisory, relating to IP on the continent.
Despite travel restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been facilitating ongoing engagement with our IP community through online channels, including our Africa IP video series. The series can be viewed on the new microsite and features short discussions and interviews with members of the African IP community, including professionals, administrators, inventors and innovators.
The digital edition of Africa Update also has links to our value-added services, such as the Africa Advisory, IP Connect and Kipanga Premium, which provide our clients with a diverse range of offerings to assist them in their IP journey.
“Despite the difficult past 12 months, the Adams Africa Network continues to go from strength to strength, with our local partners playing a significant role in assisting our key messages of developing local laws; protecting the environment; respecting human rights and supporting local entrepreneurs,” says Simon Brown, Partner at Adams & Adams, Chairperson, Africa Strategy Committee. “These messages remain key for the continued growth of business in Africa. On the IP front, there continues to be improvements in many African countries and we highlight some of these changes, updates and developments in this new bulletin. We are also honoured to have the Director-General of OAPI, Mr Denis Bohoussou, introduce this latest Africa Update in its new format,” he says.
