As per October 10, 2010 the islands of Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius became a municipality of the Netherlands. The Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (the “BOIP”) in the Hague, the Netherlands will act as the Trademark Office for the BES-islands. Although the BES-islands became a municipality of the Netherlands, Benelux and/or CTM trademark registrations will not be extended to the BES-islands or vice versa. The BES-islands have their own trademark legislation, entitled the BES Trademark Act (‘BTA’). The BTA provides for trademark protection on the BES-islands only.
Cuba: Change in Regime... What does it mean for Intellectual Property on the Island?
Political, social, and economic changes may be on the horizon for Cuba. In August 2010, Raul Castro, Cuba's interim President, expressed a willingness and desire for the influx of foreign investment in Cuba (Arreola, 2010). He suggested that the development of high-end resorts and golf courses, owned and managed by foreign-based companies, would assist Cuba's economy (Arreola, 2010). Ultimately, he expressed that the Cuban people be afforded the opportunity to work for these foreign companies to increase their standard of living and Cuba's gross domestic product. While most legal practitioners and those following the Cuban political, social, and economic climate believed the foregoing to be unlikely, it appears that this movement may have gained momentum.
