New Trademark Law


The new Law on Intellectual Property No. 38/NA, dated November 15, 2017 (the “New IP Law”) came into effect. This New IP Law replaces the Law on Intellectual Property No. 01/NA, dated December 20, 2011.

A new procedure for trademark opposition has been introduced. New trademark applications will be published electronically. Third parties can oppose the registration of the mark concerned within 60 days of the publication of a new application.

Further, the term of protection of registered Laos trademarks has be changed. Trademark registrations will be valid for a period of 10 years following the filing date and not from the registration anymore.

Lastly, new trademarks have been introduced. 3D images and animated images are now registrable.
