Why and How to Register a Trademark in Zanzibar

Zanzibar is a semi-autonomous region of Tanzania. In order for a trademark to be protected in Zanzibar, it must be registered locally with the Zanzibar Business and Property Registration Agency (BPRA).

If you register a combined trademark (which includes both word elements and figurative elements) in Zanzibar, the exclusive right to use the trademark is limited to a use of the trademark in the exact configuration or way in which it was filed and registered. If you wish to use the word element of your trademark separately from the logo (or vice versa), it is recommended you register for another trademark including only the word or figurative elements you wish to use and protect separately.

Nevertheless, if a third party eventually intends to register or use a trademark for similar goods or services that includes a primary or distinct part or portion of your trademark, you will have the right to oppose the application based on confusing similarity.

Opposition actions may be filed by interested third parties against a trademark application within a period of sixty (60) days following its publication in the trademarks journal. The probabilities of success for an opposition will vary in each case depending on the circumstances.

Although a trademark does not have to be in use in order for it to register, it must not go unused for more than three years after registration or it will become vulnerable to cancellation actions based on lack of use of the trademark.

Registered trademarks in Zanzibar have a validity of ten (10) years from the application date and can be renewed indefinitely for further periods of seven (7) years.
