Vietnam has been a member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) since 2007. This requires member nations to establish intellectual property (IP) laws whose effect is in line with minimum standards. As a result, there should be few major differences between Vietnam’s laws and those of other developed countries.
The Vietnamese IP system is divided into three areas:
- Copyright and related rights – administered by the Copyright Office of Vietnam;
- Industrial property rights – administered by the National Office of Intellectual Property (NOIP);
- Rights to plant varieties – administered by the Plant Variety Protection Office.
NOIP holds the chief coordinator role.
