Russian Supreme Court systematises court practice in IP protection cases

Dear readers,

Intellectual property is becoming one of the key assets of any company; properly using and protecting intellectual property is an essential element of successful business activity. The rapid development of IP/IT over the past decade has given rise to a multitude of practical and theoretical issues and problems. Frequently these cannot be resolved by appeals to the norms of Part Four of the Russian Civil Code, but require court interpretation and comprehensive clarification in court practice.

On 23 April 2019, the Plenary Session of the Supreme Court of Russia issued Resolution No. 10 “On the Application of Part Four of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation” (the “Resolution”). There are virtually no fundamentally new provisions of any kind in this document; instead it sets out in a systematic manner the existing court practice in cases on the protection of intellectual property.

The Resolution is thus a valuable compendium of information on cases involving the infringement of intellectual property rights, explaining the position of the Supreme Court on numerous aspects of these cases. Below, we take a look at the more interesting provisions of the Resolution.

We hope that this will be an informative read, and we would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
