Patent Infringement Follow-up 

Market watch is actively and continuously conducted to alert us of any kind of infringement, thus guaranteeing maximum protection for your patents. 
Because pharmaceutical and biotechnology patents are at an extremely high risk of infringement, AGIP has created a new service for this sector which consists of tracking and following up any infringement related to a patent or data protection with the local health authorities and patent offices.

Each main service includes the following: search, renewal, change of name, change of address, recording a license, recording an assignment, recording a merger and others. 

Moreover, AGIP.net enables clients to check their outstanding and/or settled invoices in addition to obtaining account statements.

Search for Published Patents 
Through its Intellectual Property Published Registrations (IPPR) Data Center, AGIP conducts a comprehensive search for patents published in the Official Gazettes and National Patent Office websites in the United Arab Emirates, the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Patent Office, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. 

This search aims to determine patents’ availability for use and registration, as well as it evaluates whether such patents conflict with previously existing rights owned by third parties. 

Using a number of criteria such as title, abstract, names (inventor/ applicant), numbers and dates (publication/ application/ priority) and patent families, the search covers pre-filing search, bibliographic search, English equivalent patent search, English related patent documents search and equivalent patent family search. 

After conducting the search, clients will be provided with a full detailed search report indicating any similar or matching patents of theirs within less than 24 hours.

The search report incorporates the following information: bibliographic data including the abstract; legal status including the effective date, the expiry date of the right and transactions; original document of the patent of interest, as well as translation of claims (the last two are only applicable in Saudi Arabia).

Licensing and Franchising
Offered in cooperation with Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Legal, such services include drafting licensing and franchising agreements, along with providing legal consultations on the compatibility of such agreements with Arab laws, mediation and litigation.
