The Kyrgyz Patent Office has stopped registration of trade names

The Law of the Kyrgyz Republic ¹ 133 dated July 23, 2016 "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Kyrgyz Republic” entered into force on August 21, 2016 and invalidated the Law of the Kyrgyz Republic "On Trade names". With regards to said Law the Kyrgyz Patent Office stops accepting applications for the registration of trade names.

Exclusive rights to trade names registered in the authorized state body in the field of intellectual property before the entry into force of this Act, including those registered by a license agreement shall be considered valid until the termination of the legal entity or a change in its trade name.

Additionally, the Belarus Patent Office has temporarily stopped the services concerning registration of computer programs. As soon as the service is renewed the corresponding Notice will be published on the web site of the Belarus Patent Office.
