Moldova Adopts New Law on Copyright and Neighboring Rights

Jul 21 2010 - 13:53

On July 2, 2010, the Moldovan parliament adopted the new Law on Copyright and Neighboring Rights, which will enter into force three months after its publication in the Official Gazette, which is expected soon.

One of the aims of the new Law is to harmonize the national legislation with the provisions of international conventions and European directives. It was drafted by the State Agency for Intellectual Property (AGEPI) during 2007 and 2008, and it will replace the existing Law on Copyright and Neighboring Rights, which entered into force in November 1994.

More details are to follow in the next issue.
