Copyrights And Patents In Cuba

Intellectual property is a valuable asset to your business, and it is vital that you protect that asset and enforce your rights. Each country has its own laws regarding copyrights, patents and other forms of intellectual property.

If you are doing business in Cuba, it is important that you work with an attorney who is experienced and fluent in Cuban and U.S. laws. Attorney Ambar Diaz is licensed to practice law in both countries. From her office in Miami, she represents clients throughout South Florida, the U.S. and Europe. She can help you ensure that your intellectual property rights are protected in Cuba.

Copyright In Cuba

In general, U.S. copyrights are protected under Cuban law and vice versa. Cuba follows the Berne Convention, which gives protection to literary and artistic works from other countries. This gives copyrighted works the same protection as it would have if it were copyrighted under Cuban law.

Cuban copyright law differs from the laws in the U.S., however. American attorney Ambar Diaz can help explain to you what this means for your copyrighted work in Cuba.

Registering A Patent In Cuba

There are three types of patents available under Cuban law, namely patents for processes, products and devices. In order to register for a patent, you must be a legal resident of Cuba or be represented by an agent.

Just as in the U.S., the filing of a patent can be a complex process that requires experienced and knowledgeable representation at every stage. Attorney Ambar Diaz can guide you through this complex process and help you navigate the Cuban patent registration process.
