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.
