The Palestinian Trademark and Patent Laws of 1938 are adopted in the Gaza Strip while the Jordanian Laws are adopted in the West Bank. The two Laws are very similar. For obtaining full protection all over the Palestinian Territories, we recommend filing a trademark in both jurisdictions. Palestine is not a member to any international conventions but respects the international classification of goods and services. A separate application is to be filed for each class of goods and/or services, in each jurisdiction. ATTENTION: The Trademark Law provides ONLY a one-month grace period for late renewal of a trademark and this formality is subject to payment of a supplementary fee.
