Patent and Trademark Law and Practice in Myanmar

Myanmar does not have any Patent or Trademark Law and protection for Trademarks is by way of Common Law. A Declaration of Ownership of the Trademark or for a Patent has to be registered with the Registrar of deeds in Myanmar and necessary fee for Registration and stamp duty paid, subsequently a Trademark Caution Notice has to be filed in a leading Newspaper in Myanmar. We can draft a Caution Notice for each Mark covering all the Classes for the goods you want protection for publication in Myanmar on your behalf.
