Protection of Property Rights

Secured interests in property are recognized and enforced through the "Administration de la Conservation Fonciere." The GOM has recently passed a law permitting the development of a secondary mortgage market.

Morocco has a relatively complete regulatory and legislative system for the protection of intellectual property. It is a member of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and is a party to the Bern Copyright, Paris Industrial Property, and Universal Copyright Conventions; the Brussels Satellite Convention; and the Madrid, Nice, and Hague Agreements for the Protection of Intellectual Property.
