special-301In the 2014 Special 301 Report The United States acknowledges the withdrawal of Uzbekistan’s reservation to Article 18 of the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works. But The Uzbekistani Parliament is strongly advised to take several legislative steps to improve IPR protection: approve Uzbekistan joining the Convention for the Protection of Producers of Phonograms against Unauthorized Duplication of their Phonographs (Geneva Phonograms Convention); approve Uzbekistan’s accession to the WIPO Copyright Treaty and WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WIPO Internet Treaties); and  take legislative action to provide adequate copyright protection for foreign sound recordings.
The US also recommends to Uzbekistan to provide additional resources to the Agency for Intellectual Property and to other enforcement agencies as “ex officio authority to initiate investigations and enforcement actions, including at the border”. Uzbekistan also lacks deterrent-level penalties for IPR infringement.

    The new EU trade mark Regulation enters into force on March 23rd. As a result, the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) will change its name to the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

    The amending Regulation also revises the fees payable to the Office, including an overall reduction in their amounts, particularly in the case of trade mark renewal fees. On 23.3. 2016, the Office’s online application forms and fee calculator will be automatically updated to reflect the new system.
    From its base in Alicante, Spain, OHIM has processed more than 1.3 million Community trade mark applications in 23 EU languages, from nearly every country and region in the world, since 1996.

    The Amending Regulation was published on 24 December 2015 and is part of the EU trade mark reform legislative package that also includes the replacement of the existing EU Trade Mark Directive (Directive 2008/95/EC of the European Parliament and the Council).

    OHIM is the EU’s largest decentralised agency. It is entirely self-financed, receiving no funding from the EU Budget. As well as managing the Community trade mark and the registered Community design (RCD), it works in collaboration with the EU national and regional IP offices to build a stronger IP system across the EU for the benefit of users.
