Following the passing of new IP legislation and in anticipation of its implementation, last year the WTR 1000 introduced a Myanmar chapter to track the major players in this rapidly growing market. Now, significant developments are underway in the region. Since the long-awaited Trademark Law was passed in early 2019, firms have been busy preparing themselves and their clients for the enactment of this important new piece of legislation. After months of delay and uncertainty, in late August the announcement finally came. The soft launch is set to run from 1 October 2020 until 31 March 2021. During this period of transition, trademark owners will be able to re-register marks to ensure that their current rights are maintained under the upcoming first-to-file system. Applications for new marks will be accepted after the grand opening of the Myanmar Department of Intellectual Property on 1 April 2021.
