Legislative Proposal relating to the Copyright and Allied Rights (Αmendment) Law, 2012
Area(s) of Practice: Intellectual Property Law
A new law 207(I)/2012 has been enacted relating to Copyright and Allied Rights. The new Law in Cyprus provides for strengthened enforcement measures and mechanisms to combat counterfeit and pirated copies of works which are protected by the basic Law 59/1976. The said measures make it easier for rights holders to prove infringement given that only sample evidence of infringing copies in criminal and civil procedures is required as proof of infringement of their intellectual property rights.  Further, the burden of proof is shifted upon the Defendant in relation to the existence of the rights holder’s consent or permission in relation to his IP rights.
