SEMINAR INVITATION: INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION – LAUNCH OF THE NEW SYSTEM

Although this is not official and the date may not be set in stone, the new IP Department of the Ministry of Commerce plans to (partially) launch its new online trademark filing system in mid-December 2019.

For a transition period of six months, trademarks for which declarations of ownership are recorded under the current system may be (re-) registered under the new system. New trademarks may be registered after the transition period.

We had to cancel our IP seminar in October due to the speaker having fallen ill and will have it on 10th December 2019 instead. Due to the recent development, we will dedicate a considerable portion of the seminar to the new registration system and the protection of trademarks under the new Trademark Law.
