  • Steps to handle IPRs infringement

    Action 1: Sending a cease & desist letter to the infringer requesting the infringer to voluntarily remove/dismantle the fringing signs out of the business means.

    Action 2: Filing an application for requesting the Vietnam Intellectual Property Research Institute (VIPRI) to assess the infringement. This step is necessary (before conducting action 3 below) in case the infringer uses a trademark which is similar to client's registered trademark.

    Action 3: Requesting the Vietnamese law enforcement authorities to handle the IPRs infringement and take raid actions into the infringer (if the infringer fail to comply with the demands sought). The infringer shall be imposed an administrative sanction, the infringing signs shall be seized and removed/destroyed.
