East Timor

The fact that East Timor still hasn't implemented an Industrial Property system means that the protection of rights in the East Timor region is achieved through Cautionary Notices: announcements in the local press announcing the ownership of a particular signal.

These Cautionary Notices may later be used as evidence for any conflict that may arise related to brand priorities in that region.

Filing Requirements
There is no trademark law in East Timor; protection is obtained through filing a cautionary notice.
