SEMINAR INVITATION: INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION IN MYANMAR


Our next seminar will look at how the intellectual property embodied in many goods and services can be protected in Myanmar, both under current legislation as well as under the four new IP laws that might enter into force in 2020. We will discuss pre-emptive measures to avoid future infringements and legal remedies to stop existing infringements. We will also look at the defences available to those who are unjustly accused of having violated the IP rights of others.
