In a move towards appraising the laws of intellectual property, the state of Qatar issued law n° 10 of 2020 organizing the protection of industrial design. The new law invalidates the one issued back in 2002 and in which implementing regulations were never disclosed. As a matter of fact, the only protection available for industrial design against potential infringement was cautionary notices in local newspapers that were left up to the discretion of the court.
The new law will soon be published in the upcoming official bulletin.
