Statistics of the Infringement of Intellectual Property Rights
The data on the infringements of intellectual property rights in the Republic of Croatia are being systematically monitored via regular statistical reports. Up until 2013, the mentioned statistical reports were prepared and published quarterly and annually, and since 2013 only a comprehensive annual report is being published. Reports are prepared by the State Intellectual Property Office, based on collecting and processing of statistical data on the proceedings brought due to the infringements of intellectual property rights, monitored by individual bodies competent for the enforcement of intellectual property rights: the State Attorney’s Office, the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Justice and the Customs Administration of the Ministry of Finance.
For further development and improvement of adopted methodology, there is also the Working Group for the Statistics of the Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights operating within coordination for the enforcement of intellectual property rights.
