Patent Invalidation in Vietnam: How to proceed?

Invalidation of patents (known as "patent invalidation”) is a legal procedure established in most countries with intellectual property (IP) protection laws, which allows a third party to challenge the validity of a patent. In Vietnam, this process involves submitting a request for invalidation of a specific patent to the Intellectual Property Office of Vietnam (IP VIETNAM) along with relevant supporting information and documents, subject to prescribed fees.
