The Law on Intellectual Property (IP) of Vietnam was adopted by the National Assembly of Vietnam on November 29, 2005 and came into effect on July 1, 2006.
Three years after its enforcement and two years after Vietnam’s accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO), this IP law was amended in 2009. Twenty-two of the 222 articles of the law were corrected, or supplemented with clearer definitions, or rewritten to make their contents more comprehensive and compatible with the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPs).
