Ecuador: Reforms in the Intellectual Property sphere

Commission of Justice and Structure of Ecuador approved amendments to the Criminal Code stipulating criminal offences for violation of the intellectual property rights on August 25, 2015. Said amendments are pending until consideration of the President of the Republic of Ecuador which should take place within 30 days after Commission’s approval.
