Kazakhstani people may register intellectual property rights abroad
Astana. February 3. KazTAG - The intellectual property patents issued to Kazakhstani people abroad will be valid on the territory of Kazakhstan, said Ludmila Poltorabatko, secretary of Senate committee on constitutional legislation, judicial system and law enforcement bodies on the draft law.
"The acting legislation in general protects the intellectual rights, at the same time, with new international agreements adoption, such as Eurasian patent, Singapore agreement on laws on trademarks, we are adopting our legislation in correspondence with these agreements. The main innovation is that it is offered to abandon innovational patent registration which used to be registered only inside the state and transfer to the term "patent". I.e. our citizens will be able to register the patent, their right, not only in our country but abroad," she said.
In her words, the foreign patents will be valid on the territory of Kazakhstan.
