On Thursday (23 January), the Mongolian Parliament passed a new law on intellectual property. The bill was originally presented to parliament on 25 April, 2019 by a lobby group led by M.P. N.Uchral.
Mongolia has been a member of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) since 2002; it also acceded to a number of international conventions in regards to Intellectual property rights including copyright. The Mongolian Constitution itself includes an article on copyright issues, setting out the framework for development in accordance with international standards and practice.
If there is a copyright infringement, the physical person or legal entity shall be held to account and sanctioned under the Mongolian Criminal Code; damages will be determined under the Civil Code.
