CURACAO | General Information

On 10 October 2010, the Netherlands Antilles as a country ceased to exist and Curacao became an independent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The transitional law for Curacao stipulates that from the moment Curacao 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 Curacao for more information on the prosecution and enforcement of trademarks.
