Cyprus Intellectual Property Law is harmonized with EU law
Cyprus has always made a consistent effort to remain in line with international developments in intellectual property law. It has ratified all major international intellectual property law related treaties and harmonized domestic law with the acquis communautaire.
The regulation of intellectual property matters in Cyprus rests with the Industrial Property Office. The Office receives applications for patents from patent attorneys, applications from trademark lawyers and is responsible for maintaining the different registries and takes all the administrative decisions leading to the registration of an intellectual property right. Disputes are resolved at first instance by the Office and then by the District Courts and Supreme Court.
Our lawyers make regular contributions to international legal publications that offer consulting advice on intellectual property law issues. The last example is our contribution to Trademarks Guide 2012 Guide by Getting the Deal Through.Com
