Topographies of semiconducting products

On 3 July 2013. entered into force the Law on the legal protection of Topography of Semiconductor Products. This area was previously covered by the Law on the protection of Topographies of Integrated Circuits. The adoption of the Law on the protection of Topography of Semiconductor Products derived from the need to improve the legal framework in this area, as well as the need to comply with international rules and regulations of the European Union.

the Law on the legal protection of Topography of Semiconductor Products protects semiconductor product instead of integrated circuit, and fully ensures the protection of topographies of semiconductor and allows more extensive protection, as it applies to all circuits including those made from discrete components.
