Implementation date for new IP laws confirmed

Cayman Islands

New IP laws will enter into effect in the Cayman Islands on August 1 2017, including the Trademarks Law 2016 and the Trademarks Regulations 2017. Additional regulations are expected later this summer to establish officially how previously registered marks and pending applications will transition to the new regime, as the existing law and regulations do not address transitional provisions.
