INT.

every day.
 Thus, the need for legislation guaranteeing the protection of creative products. And ideas and inventions has become more
urgent than ever. Accordingly, Intellectual Property Protection, Patent Registration and other laws began to develop in
recent times.
 The UAE has always recognized the importance of the robust and effective protection of intellectual property to ensure the
rights of others, and the Ministry of Economy is the body responsible for, amongst others, the implementation and
regulation of such intellectual property protection legislation as well as the registration of various forms of intellectual
property.
