New trademark system's 'soft opening'
  • Myanmar
  • 19 October 2020

Myanmar's recently enacted Trademark Law 2019 is gaining traction. The initial focus is on developing a system to register marks. This will be introduced in two phases: the 'soft opening' (which commenced 1 October 2020), followed by the 'grand opening' (scheduled for 1 April 2021). If a brand has taken any steps thus far to establish itself in Myanmar, this soft opening is a golden opportunity to get registered and stake a priority claim early.
