The current context of the Covid-19 outbreak has many consequences for the world of intellectual property: the deadlines of the courts and offices have been extended, the authorities have reorganised their control activities, etc.

As governmental measures differ from country to country, the UNIFAB invited Emmanuel Cornu to present a summary of the situation in Belgium.

He explains, in 2 minutes, the exceptional measures taken by the BOIP and the OPRI, as well as the measures applicable before the Belgian Customs authorities. The video is available here.

A summary in English is available here, and in French here.
