Amendments Proposed for Law on Intellectual Property

Minister of Sciences and Technology Boviengkham Vongdara presented at the ongoing 4th Ordinary Session of the National Assembly’s 8th legislature amendments to the law on intellectual property on Nov 15.

The current law on intellectual property was approved by lawmakers at the 2nd Ordinary Session of National Assembly’s 7th legislature in 2011 and endorsed by a presidential decree in the following year.

Proposed amendments include the protection of the rights of plant breeders which are stated in Articles 69-91, and are to ensure the law complies with the convention of the International Seed Federation.
