No statutory Laws on patents are in force in Afghanistan. However, a measure of protection may be sought by publishing cautionary notices at regular intervals in local newspapers. Such notices could have legal value when submitted to the Courts in the event of infringement, thereby claiming ownership of the patent and warning third parties against infringement. Documents required: patent's title, patentee's name, address and nationality, inventor names, addresses and nationalities, claims, priority claims, abstracts and specifications.
