Official talks about intellectual property in Viet Nam

The National Assembly began discussing and giving opinions on the draft Law on Intellectual Property in Ha Noi on May 30, 2005.

According to appreciation of NA, the Vietnam laws on intellectual property have basically met the standards required by the TRIPS Agreement and other important international treaties on intellectual property. Other than encoded satellite signals that have not been protected, Viet Nam's laws have regulations on objects, rights, duration, and mechanisms for protection that are in conformity with international treaties.

However, the present system of laws on intellectual property has not reached the requirement of effectiveness. Regulations on procedures of civil, administrative and criminal sanctions have not been sufficient or clear enough, and are still contradictory and overlapping…. To improve the validity and effectiveness of intellectual property protection, we should complete the Law on Intellectual Property as soon as possible.

The law should define the agency serving as the link for coordination, intensify the effective coordination between agencies enforcing the intellectual property rights and between these agencies with the rights owner, and uphold the role of courts in the field. It is also necessary to raise public awareness of intellectual property rights and encourage services on intellectual property to improve their quality.
