Angola joins world patent community

Good news for serious intellectual property players in the former Portuguese colony of Angola. By PCT Notification No. 186 WIPO announces the deposit by the Republic of Angola of its instrument of accession to the Patent Cooperation Treaty, as amended and modified to 3 October 2001. The PCT will enter into force for Angola on 27 December 2007, making it the 138th PCT member state (see full list here). On the same date, by Paris Notification No. 216, Angola will accede to the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property, as amended to 1979, becoming the 172nd member of the Paris Union.
