Drafts Amendments to IP Legislation

In September 2018 the Ukrainian Ministry of Economic Development and Trade released a new draft law for public review as the previous draft law did not get support in the Ukrainian Parliament.

The draft law amends certain legislative acts aiming to improve the protection and enforcement of rights relating to patents, utility models, designs and trademarks.

Some of the amendments will include:
- Introduction of an electronic filing system for patents, utility models, trademarks and designs
- Alignment of the grounds for refusal of trademarks
- Specification of rules for national examination and protection of international registration under the Madrid System
- Limitation of protection of utility models to devices and apparatus only
- Introduction of ‘individual character’ as an additional eligibility criterion regarding designs
