Landmark Court Ruling and New Regulations

Managing Intellectual Property

The year 2010 has witnessed a number of important steps forward for IP rights in Vietnam, beginning with amendments to the Law on Intellectual Property, which became effective on January 1, 2010, and ending with substantial developments in IP enforcement. Two of the most notable developments were the first-ever court ruling on patent infringement in Vietnam and the issuance of a new decree that revises and clarifies the sanctions for IP violations.
