1. Please describe, in relation to each form of intellectual property covered by the TRIPS Agreement, including plant variety protection, the manner in which nation treatment and most favoured nation treatment are provided to nationals of other WTO Members.
The 1992 Patent Law in its Article 2 provides that the provisions of this Law shall not contravene any international convention or treaty to which the UAE is a party, and which governs the rights of the nationals of the contracting States as well as the rights of the persons who are treated as such. Foreigners to whom the preceding paragraph does not apply shall have the same rights as are the nationals under this law, provided that they have the nationality of a state which applies the reciprocity principle to the UAE.
