Deadline for Re-filing of IP Rights Applications in Montenegro Expires on May 28, 2009

Apr 14 2009 - 17:17

Serbian patent, trademark and design applications which were pending on the date the Montenegro IPO began its operations, May 28, 2008, must be re-filed in Montenegro by May 28, 2009, to maintain the original filing date.

Serbian registrations continue to be valid in Montenegro until their expiration date, without the need for re-registration. While the re-registration is not mandatory, we advise that IP rights holders apply for a certificate of registration to document their rights in this new jurisdiction. The Montenegrin certificate of registration would be needed during enforcement procedures.

For more information, please contact Jasna Jusic in our Montenegro Office.
