Changes in Ukraine IP Legislation
A number of amendments to the current IP legislation in Ukraine are under consideration by the competent legislative bodies of Ukraine.
Accordingly, on July 1, 2005, the State Department of Intellectual Property of Ukraine published on its website drafts for changes to five IP laws:
The Law on Protection of Rights to Trademarks, Geographical Origins and Commercial Names;
The Law on Protection of Rights to Topographies of Integrated Circuits;
The Law on Protection of Rights to Trademarks;
The Law on Protection of Copyright and Related Rights;
The Law on Protection of Rights to Patents and Utility Models.
The draft laws seek to further regulate the conditions for acquiring IP rights, procedural issues, termination and renewal of rights, and IP rights protection.
