Intellectual property

On 10 October 2010, the Netherlands Antilles as a country ceased to exist and Curaçao became an independent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The transitional law for Curaçao stipulates that from the moment Curaçao became a separate country in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the former Antillean legislation regarding intellectual property rights will  continue to apply (at least for the time being).

Please see our Trademark Guide Curaçao for more information on the prosecution and enforcement of trademarks.
