IP Developments in Russia: What You Need to Know

Includes a Live Event on 06/09/2022 at 12:00 PM (EDT)

IPO has been closely monitoring IP issues related to the evolving situation in Russia. During this webinar, our panelists will provide updates related to protection and enforcement of IP in Russia, including the impact of sanctions on the maintenance of Russian IP and developments in Russian laws and in Russian courts impacting IP owners.

Russia has taken numerous steps to lessen protections for IP rights held by owners from “unfriendly countries.” The measures include no longer requiring patent royalty payments to be made to these companies for a small set of COVID-19 related goods. Several trademark applications that blatantly copy famous marks have already been filed at Russia’s Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent). In addition, Russia’s Ministry of Economic Development will be allowing the importation of certain goods (as identified by Russia’s Ministry of Industry and Trade) without authorization by the trademark holder. 

In addition, payments for acquiring and maintaining IP go through The Central Bank of Russia (CBR), which is a sanctioned entity. Payments to sanctioned entities are prohibited under U.S. law; however, General License 31 allows payments for patents, trademarks, and copyrights.

Our panelists will update our members on these and any other late-breaking IP developments related to the situation in Russia and discuss how IP owners should proceed in these uncertain and unprecedented times.
