MALTA

The goal of Maltese law is to protect intellectual property (IP) in a way that is equitable for users of IP-protected goods and sufficiently safeguards and compensates IP creators and owners. It is aligned with all current European Union legislation in this regard. The process for registering a trademark in Malta is governed by the Trademarks Act, Chapter 597 of the Laws of Malta, as amended by the new Trademark Rules, 2021 (Legal Notice 50 of 2021).
