Georgia IP Overview

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Georgia, similar to other formers, was confronted with severe challenges of reforming its internal and external policy as well as legislation in the field of intellectual property for the revitalization of its economy. In this circumstance, Georgia defined the formation of a national system for intellectual property protection as one of its priorities after gaining its independence. Georgia was the first of the former Soviet republics to create its national patent service “Sakpatenti” in 1992, which later on was transformed into the National Intellectual Property Center. Up to now, Georgia has built an IP system with all the major fields of intellectual property under Sakpatenti’s mandate: industrial property, copyright and related rights, new varieties of plants and breeds of animals.
