The paper attempts to clarify the relationship between the Criminal Code and Intellectual Property (IP) Law in determining whether an IP infringement is a crime. The results show that the determination of an IP crime as specified in 2015 Criminal Code (amended in 2017) is yet to reflect the connotation of IP as specified in 2005 IP Law (amended in 2009). This practice requires a supplement of “the plant breeders’ rights” for a comprehensive protection of IP. This requirement is of significance in creating a motivation for creative activities which contribute to the shift to technology-based growth model, innovation and creativity in Vietnam.
