Registration of intellectual rights to the means of personalization of legal entities, individual entrepreneurs and their products or services rendered is an indispensable condition for operation in the market. We offer our customers:
Now requirements for various kinds of markings get more and more stringent. When importing goods, customs authorities request a license or certificate of ownership of the means of personalization; certification laboratories do the same when issuing a certificate; participation in the exhibition requires confirmation that the signs and symbols you use do not violate the rights of the third parties, etc. Let alone the fact that a trademark is the best way to protect your rights. In fact, this is a unique and effective opportunity to protect yourself from the “patent trolling” that has been gaining momentum in Russia.

The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation introduced uncertainty into the legal practice of registering trademarks, deciding that Rospatent may refuse to register if, in the opinion of the expert of the Federal Institute for Industrial Property, the designation indicated can be perceived as a type of goods.
The resolution clarifies the procedure for determining jurisdiction of disputes arising from the fourth part of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, the procedure for resolving disputes arising from agreements referred to in this part of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation, and explains the procedure for resolving disputes related to the protection of intellectual property rights and other issues relating to copyright and intellectual property.
The use of keywords (phrases) identical or confusingly similar to another person’s means of personalization, taking into account the purpose of such use, by an advertiser in a contextual advertisement on the Internet as a criterion for its displaying can be recognized as an act of unfair competition.
