Intellectual property rights in Azerbaijan include all rights to industrial property (including inventions, industrial designs, utility models, trademarks, and geographical indication), copyright and related rights. The State Committee for Standardization, Metrology and Patents is responsible for the issuance of patents and trademark registration. The State Copyright Agency is in charge of the registration of the copyrights. Beyond this, however, procedures for the registration and protection of various intellectual property rights differ from one state agency to another. Azerbaijan is a party to several international agreements on the protection of intellectual property, including: the Convention Establishing the World Intellectual Property Organization, the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property, the Madrid Agreement Concerning the International Registration of Marks, the Madrid Protocol, the Patent Cooperation Treaty, the Eurasian Patent Convention, the Performances and Phonograms Treaty of the World Intellectual Property Organization, and the Copyright Treaty of the World Intellectual Property Organization.
