Costa Rica decriminalises IP offences

Apparently proceedings for infringement of trade secrets, patents, industrial drawings and utility models has been decriminalised in Costa Rica. According to the post on “IP Tango” blog there has been criticism from the IP community.

I personally am not aware of the implications of the decriminalisation of IP offences, nor could I find information about what IP tango outlined as “criticism from the IP community”. However, I will ask those more knowledgeable than myself in the CAS-IP team what they think and I will update this post next week to make it more complete.
