dc.description.abstract In this paper the legal status of parallel import, whether or not it infringes the trademark owner’s exclusive right, its practice in Ethiopia and its impediments are dealt with. Parallel imports are goods produced and sold by the trademark owner (IP owner) or with his consent, and the buyer subsequently imports them to another market in which they are offered for a higher price without the authorization of the trademark owner. The research has found out that parallel import is subject to trade laws (laws of the market) and intellectual property laws (Trademark law). It does not offend both legal rimes and is lawful in Ethiopia. Therefore, parallel import does not infringe the exclusive right of the trademark owner and his authorized distribution channels. en_US
