Kosovo IP rights

A circular received by the IPKat from Balkan-based IP practice SD Petosevic has informed him as follows:
"Kosovo independence that was declared this past Sunday, February 17, 2008, did not result in any immediate changes for the right holders in this new European jurisdiction. It is expected, however, that the outstanding questions regarding International Registrations and European Patents will be resolved in the near future.

Kosovo passed its own IP legislation and established its own Intellectual Property Office while still under the UN protectorate on November 19, 2007. The new IP law in Kosovo allows 12 months for re-registering Serbian registrations and re-filing pending applications. Right holders have until September 1, 2008 to maintain predecessor country priority for IP rights in Kosovo.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
