Moldova's new law

At the beginning of July the Moldovan parliament adopted a new Law on Copyright and Neighbouring Rights. When will it come into force? We're not yet sure, since this will occur three months after publication of the law in the Official Gazette, which is expected soon.

The new Law seeks to harmonise national legislation, bringing it into line with the European directives as well as the international conventions. The draft, lovingly crafted by the State Agency for Intellectual Property (AGEPI) in 2007 and 2008, will replace the current Law on Copyright and Neighbouring Rights, which entered into force in November 1994.

Thank you, PETOSEVIC, for this information.
