New position paper: Proposal for Amendments to the Criminal Code

On June 14, 2018 AmCham published a new position paper and submitted comments to the public consultation on the Draft proposal of the Act on Changes to the Criminal Code.

The position paper “Proposal for Amendments to the Criminal Code” passed AmCham members' approval and became the official position of the American Chamber of Commerce in Croatia.

In the position paper, AmCham provides its proposal for specific amendments to the current Criminal Code. These amendments would enable precise determination of damage caused and material gain realized in cases of infringements of intellectual property rights that belong to the domain of criminal law. Furthermore, AmCham proposes reducing the threshold for the criminal prosecution of infringements of intellectual property rights (the category of “considerable damage” caused in accordance with the Criminal Code) from HRK 60,000.00 to HRK 30,000.00, with the aim of active discouragement of this type of behavior.
