http://www.amchamaz.org/ American Chamber of Commerce report on IPR in Azerbaijan

 

In the mid-1990s, Azerbaijan began implementing a national system for registering and protecting intellectual property rights with the assistance of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), of which it is a member.  Azerbaijan enacted modern copyright legislation (Law on Copyright and Related Rights) in 1996, patent legislation (Law on Patents) in 1997, and trademark protection legislation (Law on Trademarks and Geographic Names) in 1998.  Azerbaijan is a party to the Convention Establishing the World Intellectual Property Organization, the Paris Convention for Protection of Industrial Property, and the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works.  In September 2001, Azerbaijan became a party to the Geneva Phonograms Convention. 
 
The State Copyright Agency has formed an anti-piracy commission, with representatives from various ministries.  While the Agency has initiated civil court proceedings for violation of copyrights, in practice, there is limited enforcement of intellectual property rights.  Pirated software, cassettes and videotapes, as well as knock-off clothing and luxury items, are widely available in Azerbaijan.  In 2003, Azerbaijan remained on the U.S. government's "Watch List" of countries that fail to provide adequate and effective protection for intellectual property rights of American companies, as specified by Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974.  Azerbaijan is not yet a member of the World Trade Organization, but the Ministry of Economic Development has retained an advisor to assist in preparing Azerbaijan's bid for accession.
