AmCham Macedonia Prepares Guide for Protection of Trademarks

May 24 2010 - 11:37

On the occasion of the World Intellectual Property Day, April 26, 2010, the Intellectual Property Rights Committee of the American Chamber of Commerce in Macedonia (AmCham Macedonia) prepared and promoted a Guide for Protection of Trademarks, aimed at providing entrepreneurs and managers with information on how to protect their trademarks in Macedonia.

The Guide presents an overview of the legal framework and trademark protection registration process in Macedonia, as well as a description of the strategies and challenges related to protection of trademarks.

The IPR Committee representatives stressed at the press conference held in Skopje on April 26 that the adequate IP protection legislation exists, but that more work needs to be done in terms of its implementation. They emphasized the lengthy court procedures for cases related to protection of intellectual property rights, noting that the majority of judges and prosecutors are not well versed in this sphere. Consequently, as the Committee members stressed, AmCham will organize training for judges and public prosecutors to stress the importance of this subject.
