List of Trademark Journals in Nigeria

The Trademarks Journal in Nigeria includes reference to the Nice classification, which groups goods or services of an application in accordance with the current version and edition of the Nice Classification. The trademark registry in Nigeria typically publishes one to two volumes of the trademarks journal annually notifying the public of applications that have lodged in the country.

WHEN IS A TRADEMARK PUBLISHED IN A TRADEMARKS JOURNAL?

After a trademark application has been accepted by the Trademark Registry in Nigeria, the trademark application will be advertised in the trademark journal depending on the Registry’s backlog. Advertisement of a trademark in the trademark journal does not mean the mark is registered. The publication of a trademark application in the trademark journal gives the public the opportunity to raise a trademark opposition, if necessary.

ADVERTISEMENT OF TRADEMARK APPLICATION

Trademark application is advertised in the trademark journal with the following details:

  • Details of the trademark
  • Date of application
  • Details of the applicant with his address
  • Applicant’s address for service including his agent’s detail
  • Class & specification of goods or service

OPPOSING TRADEMARKS PUBLISHED IN THE JOURNAL

Any person who has a valid ground of opposition to any application for registration of a trademark advertised in the trademarks Journal may file a statement of opposition with the Registrar of Trademarks within two months from the date of issue of the publication. The prescribed fee must accompany the statement of opposition.
