The Vietnamese legislation on the protection of IP rights is mainly contained in the Intellectual Property Law (November 29 2005). This law, along with other related laws such as the Civil Code 2005, the Penal Code 1999, the Competition Law 2004, the Customs Law 2001 and the Information Technology Law 2006, forms a clear legal framework for the protection and enforcement of IP rights in Vietnam.
