Enforcement of intellectual property rights

Government Resolution No. 330 of 14 April 1999 required, under point 9, to analyse the possibilities and needs for ensuring information flow between intellectual property actors and to create legal, organisational and technical conditions for the creation of a single information system among all stakeholders.

After carrying out analyses by individual entities and after discussing the main intention and objective of the information flow, a proposal for an information system project was prepared, which should particularly contribute to the rapid exchange of information between entities, to the implementation of analyses of the state of intellectual property rights protection and to the increased effectiveness of rights enforcement.

The draft system is based on the needs of individual intellectual property rights bodies and on the need to implement synergies between supervisory authorities. The content of individual chapters is adapted to the needs and possibilities of individual authorities, mainly due to the competences for inspection.
