New Trademark Act 2015 for the British Virgin Islands

The New Trademark Act 2015 and the New Trademark Rules 2015 comes into effect in the British Virgin Islands on September 1, 2015. The implication of this change means that the dual filing system that is currently in place will no longer apply. Additionally, it will no longer be possible to file a BVI trademark on the basis of a UK registration.
