Serbian Draft Law on Trademarks Up for Public Discussion
On March 6, 2009, head of the Serbian Intellectual Property Office, Branka Totic, invited IP professionals to contribute their comments, suggestions and proposals regarding the Serbian Draft Law on Trademarks.
The Office will organize a roundtable discussion at its premises in Belgrade in late March, as part of the public discussion on the Draft Law on Trademarks.
One of the main aims of the draft law is to eliminate the drawbacks and ambiguities of the previous law, and to harmonize the Serbian intellectual property legislation with that of the European Union.
The draft law will replace the old Law on Trademarks of the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro, which entered into force on January 1, 2005.
