Latin Legal Terms


Dissimilis – this Latin adverb literally means unlike, different, disparate, dissimilar or distinct. For example in the Patent Law, new trademarks are registered at the Patent Office only if these are visually different than the already registered (otherwise there would be harming of image rights) and do not contradict with others. Different are also penalties for delayed performance on one hand, and for non-performance on the other, stipulated in the contracts.
“Dissimilis” shares similar meaning with the term “diversus”.
