The Mongolian IP Office’s (MNOIP) Copyright and Inspection Departments together with the US Embassy in Mongolia have carried out a series of talk for World IP Day based on “Copyright and IT”.  Whilst still lagging behind its neighbours on the IT front, Mongolia is keen to see the development in this field.

Discussions were held in Ulaanbaatar between the deputy director of MNOIP Mr. D. Delgersaikhan , deputy head of the US Embassy, Mr. Manuel Mackellar as well as trade officials, including representatives from the Mongolian Communications Information and Technology Authority and Mongolian Software Industry Association. 

The Director of MNOIP’s Copyright Department Mr. Myagmardorj focused on the copyright issues facing companies in Mongolia in the IT field including enforcement of the same.  During the meeting issues of copyright infringement related to Mongolian internet sites were particularly highlighted, as well as IT licensing problems related to Mongolia.
