Official statistics of the Russian PTO shows the growing interest of foreign industrial design filing and registration in Russia. Indeed, there are many reasons for that but the reasonable balance between the associated costs, timing, scope of protection and enforcement of industrial designs is amongst the most important aspects in this particular area. The idea of this webinar is to demonstrate the best practices, including the case law, with regard to protection and enforcement of industrial design rights.

The webinar is divided in two parts: the first one will provide you with the insight on the main issues involved in the registration of design rights in Russia. Recently revised law let future patent owners increase the scope of protection, but how and what for will be explained during the webinar with the accent on the most crucial points. The second part of the webinar will highlight practical issues relating to design management and enforcement strategies.


This webinar will be equally useful for patent and trademark attorneys, design and copyright attorneys, lawyers and business people who are interested in getting significant knowledge about the current situation as well as the developments of the Russian system of protection of design rights and its impact on the whole national and international IP practice. The webinar is a unique opportunity for the respective IP practitioners to get a better understanding of what specific strategies and tactics can be used by design owners in the legal, business and marketing IP-related planning.
