Intellectual Property Law & Information Technology Law
We register trademarks and trade names on all the islands in the Dutch Caribbean (Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire, St. Maarten, St. Eustatius and Saba) and provide consulting services in all areas of intellectual property law. In cases of infringement, counterfeit (imitation) articles for example, unauthorized use of copyrights, including music or photo rights, we can take immediate legal action, with or without the cooperation of law enforcement and prosecuting agencies. This can result in interesting cases. Did you know that the creations of carnival groups in annual carnival parades are protected by copyright law?
We provide legal assistance to television stations regarding copyright law and enter into negotiations to license broadcasting rights.
In the field of information technology, we draft a wide variety of software (development) contracts, license agreements, various IT agreements and electronic signature agreements for both local companies and international firms which, in many cases, operate in Curaçao’s E-zones.
