Lithuania Adopts Amendments to Patent Law

Jan 20 2011 - 10:46

On December 23, 2010, the Lithuanian parliament adopted the amendments to the Patent Law in preparation for the country’s accession to the Patent Law Treaty (PLT). The amendments will harmonize the provisions of the law with the requirements of the PLT. The amendments will enter into force following the President’s signature and publication in the Official Gazette.

The PLT ratification documents have been submitted to the Lithuanian parliament and the ratification of the treaty is expected in the spring of 2011.

The PLT is designed to harmonize and streamline formal procedures set by national or regional patent offices for the filing and maintenance of patents.
