New Legislation Drafted

The Government of The Bahamas announced on 8 January 2013 that it intends to modernize the country’s intellectual property system and has drafted new legislation. The Bills can be viewed on the Government website under the heading of Bills, Laws & Acts and includes:

- Copyright Bill
- Patent Bill
- Trade Marks Bill
- Geographical Indications Bill
- False Trade Descriptions Bill
- Protection of New Plant Varieties Bill
- Integrated Circuits Bill

The intention is to make The Bahamas compliant with its intellectual property rights obligations under the WTO and EPA. The Ministry of Financial Services and the Attorney General’s Office have recently started discussing the implications of the draft legislation through public forums and are requesting comments from professional associations and legal practitioners.
