Intellectual Property laws of Pakistan include the copyright laws, patent laws and trademark laws. This area of law protects the work of creative individuals and businesses from unauthorized use or exploitation by third parties. By utilizing Intellectual Property laws, creators and innovators can fully protect and benefit from their creations.
Several general principles are important for effective management of intellectual property (IP) rights in Pakistan. First, it is important to have an overall strategy to protect your IP. Second, IP is protected differently in Pakistan than in the U.S. Third; rights must be registered and enforced in Pakistan, under local laws. Your U.S. trademark and patent registrations will not protect you in Pakistan.
Intellectual property issues are critical to the success of any business, regardless of its size. Registration of patents and trademarks is on a first-in-time, first-in-right basis, so you should consider applying for trademark and patent protection even before selling your products or services in the Pakistan market.
