Paths to protection

Ways to protect your invention

Patents are a way of protecting your inventions. By filing a successful patent you will be awarded a monopoly to exploit your invention for a period of time.

National Patents are the most effective way of defending your invention if you only require protection in a single jurisdiction. If this is not enough for your needs, this country has signed international agreements on patents, which facilitate their internationalization:

PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty)

The PCT system allows simplified international patent applications which in turn eases national filings.

Fifth Civil Court of First Instance – A new special court for trademarks in Syria

This court, called the Fifth Civil Court of First instance, will be used to hold hearings related to appeals against final refusal decisions by the Registrar, litigation proceedings with respect to infringement cases and oppositions by third parties, and cancellation proceedings, which is going to accelerate the decision making process for the above mentioned cases. Although Syria has been continously facing serious political and humanitarian problems, this new court hopes to, at least, open a democratic space with regards to trademark registrations so that new initiatives in the country can be made viable.
