Special IP Court

Written by Alexey Ivanov. Posted in News

The Russian High Arbitration Court has finalized the draft of the bill which will be proposed to the Parliament to introduce a specialized Intellectual Property Court in Russia. According to the draft the specialized court will consider all cases where businessmen or legal entities dispute the decisions of the Russian Patent and Trademark Office. It should also become a supervisory instance for other courts' decisions on IP infringement cases. The court will be serviced by selected specialists (engineers) who should help the judges to understand technical issues of the cases.
