Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law


As trademark is vital to the promotion of trade and the protection of consumer interest, a study on the protection of trademarks will be meaningful. The norms of trademark protection prescribed in the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (hereinafter referred to as ''TRIPS'') are internationally recognized as standard. In this paper, Nepalese trademark laws will be studied and compared with the minimum standards prescribed by the TRIPS. This study will suggest a few recommendations for further promotion and protection of trademarks in Nepal.
