Keywords: case law, intellectual property, Rospatent, Federal Anti-Monopoly Service, trademarks, standard of proof, Paris Convention, utility models, procedural law


This comment reviews key positions in the rulings of the Presidium of the Russian
Intellectual Property Court (IPC) issued between March and July 2022. This Chamber
hears cassation appeals against the decisions of the IPC first instance and deals
primarily, but not only, with matters of registration and validity of industrial property
rights. Therefore, this review predominantly covers substantive requirements
for patent and trademark protection, as well as procedural issues both in the
administrative adjudicating mechanism at the Patent office (Rospatent) and at the
IPC itself. The current review encompasses a variety of topics related to trademark
law, such as acquired distinctiveness, revocation for lack of use, unprotected
elements; the protection of utility models; various procedural matters.
