Protecting Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in Courts, FAS and FCS in Russia

Technology moves fast, and so must the law

The fundamental rules and principles of all intellectual property law are codified in Part IV of the Civil code of the Russian Federation which came into force in 2008. Namely, trademarks, service marks, patents (industrial designs, inventions and utility model patents), the appellation of origin and geographical designations, databases, topologies of integrated circuits and computer software.

Protection of these rights is achieved via registration with the Russian intellectual property office, known informally as Rospatent.

The internet is the final frontier of IP protection

The ‘concept notes’ of the new improved code stated that technological progress “as well as increasing capacities of information and telecommunication networks necessitate continuous improvement of legislation on intellectual property rights.”

It further states the intention that Russian civil legislation shall be suitable to deal with the “contemporary level of technological development and encourage the development and broad application of new technologies as well as secure the protection of interests of right holders.”
