Assignments are registered with the Armenian Intellectual Property Agency (AIPA). To register the assignment it is necessary to provide the AIPA with the assignment document which must be in writing and be signed by the assignor (previous owner) to be valid.
No notarization or legalization is required. The document should state clearly who the parties are (name and full address) and which trademarks (registrations and applications) are to be transferred.
If the procedure is handled by an agent, he or she will need a power of attorney from the new owner (simply signed, no notarization or legalization required).
The assignment document should be translated into Armenian and a state fee of approximately $150 is payable.
