European Patents to be Validated in Morocco

Effective March 1, 2015, European patents may now be validated in Morocco.  This is the first time that a non-European country recognizes the legal validity of a European in its territory.  This move should expand the country’s opportunities to increase foreign investment, while simultaneously strengthening the economics benefits of the Moroccan patent system.
