Title:Legal and judicial protection of trademarks in Nigeria: a retrospective examination
Author:Alao, AkinISNI
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic History
Geographic term:Nigeria
Abstract:This article details the history of trademarks and their protection in Nigeria, notably through the Trademarks Ordinance, 1914, and the Trademarks Act Cap 436 of 1967. It concludes that the Nigerian courts have a good grasp of the law on trademark and allied cases to the extent of being in a position to promote commerce while at the same time protecting genuine investors against fraudsters. However, as determined as the courts in Nigeria seem to be in protecting trademark, they can do no more than grant relief and an injunction when it comes to enforcing their decisions. Ref.
