In 1993, The United Arab Emirates adopted a new set of Intellectual Property Laws consistent with international standards. Since then, these laws have been strictly enforced. The UAE is a member of the General Accord on Trade and Tariff (GATT) and will soon join the new World Trade Organization (WTO). It is a signatory of the International Treaties for the Protection of Intellectual Property. The UAE is committed to prevent anyone from using its territory for selling counterfeit products or using pirated technology.
The requirements to register a copyright, a patent or a trademark in the UAE are similar to those of the industrialized countries. However, any published material (books, videos, computer software, etc.) must have a registered copyright before being commercialized in the UAE. Also, under the UAE Trade Agency Law, the registration of any intellectual property right must be done through a UAE National agent or an Agency firm controlled by UAE Nationals.
