An insight into IP in Turkey



James Nurton


One of the pleasures of working in IP is the opportunity it provides to meet and learn from legal practitioners all over the world. Our recent interview with Cesur Kilinç of Anadolu in Turkey is an example of this

Cesur KilincCertain jurisdictions – such as the United States, the big EU countries, Japan and China – dominate the world of IP (and the pages of Managing IP). But we are always aware that most IP owners have international interests, whether through ownership of IP rights, partnering or enforcement. Moreover, many IP owners in countries outside of the big markets have interesting perspectives on global IP trends and challenges.

For our recently published Turkey IP Focus (4th edition), I did an interview (by email) with Cesur Kilinç (right). He is legal director of Turkish Anadolu Group. You may not have heard of Anadolu, but you are more likely to be familiar with some of its brands, which include Efes beer and Komili olive oil. Altogether, he told me, its subsidiaries own more than 700 Turkish trade marks and 500 marks internationally.

The interview covers local and international trade mark issues, counterfeiting and what qualities Kilinç looks for in outside counsel: "commercially astute, proactive and responsive". It is free to read online.

The Turkey IP Focus also includes two sponsored articles:

Okan Çan and M N Aydin Deris of Deris look at the Constitutional Court’s decision to cancel provisions for the invalidation of trade marks due to non-use

Ozge Atilgan Karakulak and Selin Sinem Erciyas of Gün + Partners discuss recent efforts to harmonise the Turkish Patent Law with European standards, and analyse how well they have worked

You can also read all of last year’s supplements, covering developments in areas such as Mexico, the Americas, Canada, Europe, India, Brazil and China on our dedicated supplements page. All include articles sponsored by the firms mentioned, and are free to read.
