Intellectual property law
Monegasque intellectual property law is governed by four main laws :
- Law No.1058 of June 10, 1983 on Trademarks and Service marks;
- Law No.606 and No.607 of June 20, 1955 on patents, and on Designs and Models;
- Law No.491 of November 24, 1948 on the Protection of Literary and Artistic Property.
The main intellectual property treaties are applicable, as Monaco entered most of the Agreements in the discipline. Monegasque intellectual property law is therefore developing according to international standards.
We can advise our clients on trademarks, patents, designs and models application , and in any kind of proceedings, e.g. counterfeiting, seizure for counterfeiting, and tort actions.
