Pursuant to our recent article about the introduction of a new trade mark law in Myanmar, we have just been advised that the “soft opening period” will begin on 1st October 2020. The soft opening period will last 6 months, during which the IPO will accept applications for trade marks which have been recorded at the Registry of Deeds under the current system of trade mark protection in Myanmar. All applications filed in the soft opening period will receive a filing date of the date on which the new law comes into force.

 

Further information will be posted as soon as it has been received.
