What are the costs of a trademark registration in Yemen?

The costs of trademark registration in Yemen depend on the number of Nice classes that are relevant to the trademark. Most marks need 1 to 3 classes, but it is possible to get  protection in all of classes 1 through 45 of the Nice classification.


How do you get a trademark registration in Yemen?

You can register your brand name with the Institute of Intellectual Property of Yemen (YIPO). To submit an application, you need to share certain information with YIPO. First of all, you must transfer a copy of the deed of incorporation or an extract from the Trade Register. This should contain contact details such as the name, address and purposes of the person making the request. You will also submit a representation of your brand, along with a list of the goods or services you trade under that brand.

The first to use his or her brand name in the region has the rights to that name. Registration is therefore not mandatory, but in practice it is wise to do so anyway. This prevents you from having to deal with brands that resemble your unique brand, and you prevent copying behavior from third parties.


What are the requirements for a trademark search in Yemen?

Before registering your trademark in Yemen, it is best to conduct a trademark search. This way you can see which other brands already exist and whether or not they resemble your brand name. This way you will not be faced with unpleasant surprises when it is already too late, and you will know to what extent you can protect your brand name. Please note, a trademark search must be done in Latin due to the language barrier.


Registering different kinds of trademarks in Yemen

Your trade mark can be an image or a text, but it can also consist of several elements. Please ensure that you submit an accurate representation of your brand name with the application. And keep in mind the different parts. If you want to protect individual elements of your brand name, you must submit separate applications for this.

If you don’t do this, anyone who wants to can get away with the individual parts from your brand. Once this happens, you can object, but only if the goods or services provided are of a similar nature to yours. Such a situation is called confusing resemblance. The question of whether you will be successful if you object differs per situation. It is therefore wise to have all parts of your brand name recorded on time.


How long is the validity and how does renewal of your registration work?

A registered trademark is valid in Yemen for a period of 10 years from the date of application. You can extend the registration indefinitely, each time for a period of 10 years. You can apply for an extension from 6 months before the registration period has expired, and until the last day of the month in which the registration is no longer valid. After this, there is a deferral period of no less than 12 months in which your trademark registration can still be renewed, but you will pay an extra fee for this.

If you register a brand name while you are not selling any products in Yemen at all, you have to take into account a different procedure. You can register your trademark in Yemen without using it, but the protection of your registration is compromised if you are inactive for more than 5 years. In such a situation, your registration may be canceled due to lack of use. You can prevent this by at least being as minimally active with your brand as possible.


Why and where do you register your trademark?

For example, when registering your trade-mark, consider not only the country where your company is located, but also the countries where your product is produced or extracted.

In addition, you should ask yourself which countries pose a risk. Where can you expect your brand name to be abused? After all, you want to secure it here as quickly as possible. Also look for places where the major competitors are active and have your brand registered in countries where similar products are regularly offered.
