IP Court with Extended Jurisdiction

The Portuguese Parliament has adopted a law (Law 55/2019 of 5 August 2019) amending the Law of the Organization of the Judiciary System, in respect of two important aspects in the field of intellectual property.

Firstly, the law gives new powers to the Intellectual Property Court in the area of copyright and also in the contractual field of industrial property rights.

Secondly, Law No. 55/2019 creates a new section in the Lisbon Court of Appeals specializing in intellectual property and competition, regulation and supervision which will have jurisdiction over the causes of the IP court and the Competition, Regulation and Supervision court.

The amendments will enter into force on October 1, 2019.
