The new trademark regulation entered into force on date 07.06.2018 following the publication of the Decision of the Council of Ministers no. 315, dated 31.05.2018 “On approval of the trademark regulation” into the official gazette. It aligns Albanian legislation with the European Union trademark legislation (i.e., the European Union Trademark Regulation 2017/101). Following changes and clarifications should be noted:
ZMP Montenegro is proud to announce to be the first to set up a Customs surveillance on the basis of Copyright in Montenegro. Until now, there were several attempts by other representatives to set up the customs surveillance on the basis of copyright, but they were unsuccessful.
The first customs surveillance on the basis of copyright has been granted to our Client, The Cartoon Network Inc.
This represents a step forward in enforcing all intellectual property rights, regardless they are registered or not.
If you are wondering where you can meet our colleagues from Polish ZMP Office, here is an answer!
