Trademarks Act 2019
Dear Valued Clients & Associates
We are pleased to announce that the long-awaited overhaul of trademark laws in Malaysia is finally coming to fruition. The all-new Trademarks Bill 2019 was tabled in the Malaysian Parliament on 11 April 2019 and was approved, with some amendments, by the Lower House (Dewan Rakyat) on 02 July 2019 and the Upper House (Dewan Negara) on 23 July. Pending royal assent, it is now most certain that the new Act will come into effect by the last quarter of this year.
We will keep you apprised when the Trademarks Act 2019 becomes enforceable and the accompanying Trademark Regulations are issued.
In the meantime, please click here for some key takeaways from the new statute.
