Where
Viet Nam
When
2013
Key objectives of the measure:

The amendments took effect on 1st January 2010, providing clear provisions on intellectual property for literary and artistic products on paper, as well as for other digital technology products (programmes, softwares, digital products) and television (broadcast programmes), as well as for other types of products, taking account of the fact that Viet Nam is a country where technology and the Internet have developed very quickly in recent years; the amended law also embraced traditional cultural products, a field in which intellectual property rights had not previously been fully recognized. The material rights for owners and relevant partners are also more clearly regulated and regarded as a property supported by the state for relevant partners.
