Amendment of Thai Intellectual Property Laws

Informed Counsel

Since 2003, Thailand has been engaged in amending its key intellectual property laws—the Trademark Act, the Patent Act, and the Copyright Act. The amendments are intended to provide protection for new types of marks, make the registration process less time-consuming, and clarify some contentious issues such as copyright fees, copyright fee collection agencies, and penalties for copyright offenses. The progress of the amendments is explored in this article.
