Time Frame for Trademark Infringement Action in Armenia
The time frame for trademark infringement actions in Armenia can vary depending on several factors, including court workload, case complexity, documentation requirements, and the presence of appeals. Here is a general overview of the expected time frames for trademark infringement actions in Armenia:
Average Duration for Judgment: On average, it takes approximately seven to nine months for a judgment to be issued in a trademark infringement case, assuming that no expert opinion is required. This period includes the time from filing the lawsuit to the issuance of a judgment.
First Hearing: Typically, the first hearing in a trademark infringement case is scheduled approximately two months after the lawsuit is filed.
Appeals: If one of the parties files an appeal, the duration of the proceedings may be extended. The Court of Appeal's decision can take an additional five to six months, while proceedings before the Court of Cassation usually take three to four months.
Interim Protective Measures: Interim protective measures, such as the seizure of infringing goods, can be obtained quickly, often within a matter of days. These measures are granted ex parte, meaning they are issued without notifying the opposing party. The purpose of interim measures is to prevent the enforcement of a judgment from becoming impossible or more difficult.
Criminal Proceedings: In trademark infringement cases prosecuted under criminal law, the pretrial investigation phase typically takes around three to four months before the trial begins. The duration of the criminal trial itself is comparable to civil proceedings.
