With upcoming IP Laws to be enacted in 2014, the IP profession is the next building block in the IP ecosystem. A number of IP practitioners, businesspeople and brand owners in Myanmar met on December 17th 2013 and agreed to establish the first Intellectual Property Association of Myanmar (IPAM) starting from 1st January, 2014. The main objectives of the IPAM are to share IP knowledge, protect IP rights and promote IP awareness in Myanmar. The initial committee has 25 members, comprising 10 private practitioners and 15 industry people.
Anyone looking to engage with the new IP system in Myanmar may be interested in working with IPAM.
