By Mrs. Lyudmila Novoselova, President of the Intellectual Property Court, Russian Federation
The idea of establishing a specialized intellectual property (IP) court in the Russian Federation has been actively debated since the late 1980s. A strong commitment to fostering a more favorable environment for innovation, business and foreign investment and to improving the country’s IP protection system, culminated in the establishment of such a court in December 2011 when Federal Constitutional Law No. 4-FKZ was adopted. Russia’s new Intellectual Property Court (the IP Court) opened its doors for operation on July 3, 2013 — a significant milestone in the history of IP protection in the Russian Federation.
