Protection of Industrial property rights in Vietnam can be traced back to the French colonial period at the end of the 19th century, when the French patent law was declared applicable to the territory of Indochina (now Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia). The regime was abandoned in 1955 after the end of the Indochinese war, when Vietnam was divided into two parts. In 1957, the market-based economy South Vietnam adopted legislation on IPR protection, which was abolished after the victory of the communist North in 1975. IPR protection was not recognised by the northern regim, which followed a central-planning economy and, after the unification, applied it to the whole country. Only in the 1980s did Vietnam begin to creat a modern IPR protection system alongside with its adoption of the so-called socialist-oriented market economy and open door policy.
