Trademark Registration in Maldives
Till date, there is no specific and statutory law for governing and regulating registration and protection of trademarks and service marks in Maldives. However, Maldives is in progress to promulgate its trademarks law which will be in compliance with the provisions given in the TRIPS Agreement, Madrid Protocol, etc. Maldives has been a member of WTO and WIPO since the year 1995 and 2004, respectively. Presently, the domestic trademark registration in Maldives does not follow the rigmarole of application filing, trademark examination, and publication in the trademark journal or bulletin, but is merely based on the publication of the proposed trademark in a local English newspaper and also in a vernacular (Dhivehi) newspaper, as a Trademark Cautionary Notice.
In connection with the national trademark registration in maldives, our well-informed and dutiful trademark lawyers offer the following services to entities belonging to Maldives and other countries worldwide:
- Creation of original and unique trademarks or service marks
- Allotment of appropriate class to each trademark/service mark
- Preparation and authentication of all requisite documents for trademark registration in Maldives
- Publication of the Trademark Cautionary Notice
- Tackling any possible opposition to trademark registration

The international trademark registrations of entities located in Maldives, and those in Maldives of foreign entities may be made through filing under the TRIPS Agreement or Madrid Protocol of WIPO. After getting approval from the concerned international body related with trademarks, the national-level trademark prosecution will be necessary in the specified target country, where trademark registration is sought.
