Assignment of a trademark in Armenia shall be in writing and be registered with the Armenian Intellectual Property Agency (AIPA) in order to be valid (art. 1175 of the Civil Code of Armenia). Thus, failure to register will make the assignment unenforceable not only against innocent third parties but also the assignor and the assignee.
The AIPA has one month to examine the documentation and register the assignment. Refusal to register the assignment (e.g. on the ground of potential deception of the public) can be appealed to the court or the AIPA Appellate Committee.
