Sep 21 2010 - 14:11

On September 8, 2010, the Kosovo parliament approved two new laws in the field of intellectual property, the Law on Industrial Design and the Law on Trademarks.

The new Law on Industrial Design will replace the 2005 Law No. 2005/02-L45, while the new Law on Trademarks will replace the 2006 Law No. 2006/02-L54, currently in force in Kosovo.

To enter into force, the new laws will have to be promulgated by the President of the Republic of Kosovo, which is expected in the near future.

Furthermore, on September 1, 2010, the Kosovo government approved the Draft Law on Patents, which has been submitted to the parliament for further discussion and approval.

More details about the new laws are to follow soon.
