Thailand recognizes three broad categories of property rights: Patents, Trademarks, and Copyrights. The Patent Act protects inventions, product designs and pharmaceuticals. The Trademark Act governs the registration and protection for trademarks. The Copyright Act protects literary, artistic works and performance rights by making it unlawful to reproduce or publish such works without the owner's permission.
For all patent, copyright and trademark registration procedures, please refer to Department of Intellectual Property.
