Therefore a company operating in Norway has to follow The Patents Act from 1967 containing most of the domestic statutes which regulate intellectual property. Moreover you can take in consideration as well the provisions of the Designs Act adopted by this country in 2003 and those of the Marketing Act which came in force in 2010.
