The IP Federation has written to the British Embassy in Portugal, requesting that every effort is made to influence the Portuguese government to effect the removal of Law 62/2011 in favour of a Law/legal system for enforcement of IP rights that is applicable in all technical fields (including pharmaceuticals).
The system should be operated by a state court and in this regard the specialised IP court has been communicated to be operational in Portugal. It is imperative that the new Law/legal system for enforcement of IP rights is compliant with National, Union and International Legislation and agreements.
