Nigeria: new Industrial Property Commission Bill on the way

An Industrial Property Commission Bill - legislation that will repeal the outdated legislation relating to patents, designs and trade marks, and also introduce plant variety protection - is apparently on the way. This legislation will also create an Industrial Property Commission of Nigeria. In addition, the authorities have announced that they intend to pass measures to make it easier for companies to do business in Nigeria. These developments will all be very welcome.
