Ladies and gentlemen,
Perhaps you already know that one of the key areas of activity of Bolotov & Partners is active participation in the work of international organizations for the protection of intellectual property and in highlighting changes and monitoring the legislation of the Central Asian republics.
So, every year, over the past ten years, we, as a legal consultant, have been reviewing the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan in the field of intellectual property for the International Trademark Association (INTA) for their annual directories INTA’s Country Guides Searchable Practice Guide and INTA’s Madrid Agreement and Madrid Protocol Practice Guide ”, as well as periodically for MARQUES (founded in 1986, the association is one of the international coordinators of the professional activities of IP market participants with headquarters in the UK) for their reference“ Unfair Competition Team – Look-Alike Chart ”, … In addition, we analyze and update every year the changes in the field of intellectual property for “Manual Industrial Property (The Brown Book)” in countries such as Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia and Uzbekistan. This publication includes information on the protection of intellectual property (patents, trademarks) in more than 235 countries around the world.
Such work allows us to keep abreast of the latest changes in the legislation in the field of intellectual property in Kazakhstan and other Central Asian republics, to inform our friends and colleagues about such changes and possible consequences for business. This is an excellent opportunity to promptly submit proposals and provide feedback from business and specialized organizations to the authorized bodies considering bills and planned changes and build a fruitful good dialogue.
In case you want to keep abreast of all the changes that are taking place in the field of intellectual property in Kazakhstan and other republics of Central Asia, please follow our news and updates, we regularly cover them and we will be glad to be useful to you in this matter.
Also, at your request, we can provide you with information about changes in legislation, instructions and rules in the field of protection and enforcement of IP. You are welcome!
