Maatoug Nouressaid

Maatoug Nouressaid is our exclusively recommended Trademark Law expert in Tunisia on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Maatoug directly using the contact details listed above.

The term trademark refers to a recognisable badge, phrase, word or symbol that designates a specific product or service and legally differentiates it from all other such products and services. A trademark uniquely identifies a product or service, as belonging to a specific company and recognises the company’s ownership of the mark. Trademarks are generally considered a form of intellectual property and may or may not be registered.

However in Tunisia the right to use a trademark does not confer ownership and only the registration which attributes ownership.

Therefore do not neglect the protection in Tunisia now considered as the corridor par excellence that lead to Africa.

In addition, I advise filing directly in Tunisia and not going through the Madrid Protocol, because on-site monitoring is much better when the filing is done directly in Tunisia.

MAATOUG Nour-Essaid

MAATOUG Nour-Essaid is our exclusively recommended Copyright Law expert in Tunisia on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Maatoug directly using the contact details listed above.

Copyright Law refers to the legal right of the owner of intellectual property. In simpler terms, copyright is the right to copy. This means that the original creators of products and anyone they give authorisation to are the only ones with the exclusive right to reproduce the work.

Copyright Law gives creators of original material the exclusive right to further use and duplicate that material for a given amount of time, at which point the copyrighted item becomes public domain.

While Copyright Law is not all-encompassing, other laws, such as patent and trademark laws, may impose additional sanctions. Although copyrights, trademarks, and patents are frequently used interchangeably, they offer different forms of protection for intellectual property.

Trademark Laws protect material that is used to distinguish an individual’s or corporation’s work from another entity. These materials include words, phrases, or symbols—such as logos, slogans, and brand names—which copyright laws do not cover. Patents cover inventions for a limited period of time. Patented materials include products such as industrial processes, machines, and chemical positions.
