Patent Law in Myanmar - SSRANA


Patent Law in Myanmar

Myanmar does not have any specific Patent law. A Patent may be registered by filing a Declaration of Ownership for Patent at the office of the Sub-registrar of Deeds and Assurances in Yangon. The patent owner may also publish a Cautionary Notice in a leading Newspaper in Myanmar, under section 18(f) of the Registration Act (1946). This serves as a notice to public that said invention belongs to someone and if required, a passing off remedy shall be exercised in a court. 

Myanmar has agreed to conform to the provisions of the TRIPS Agreement by 2021. The Myanmar government has started drafting the Intellectual Property Law and is yet to be finalized and adopted.
