Exclusive rights to intellectual property caught in the Russian Civil Code reform

05/05/2014

The sixth set of amendments to the Civil Code of the Russian Federation was signed by the President on 12 March 2014. It brings significant changes to almost all of the Civil Code chapters regulating the rights deriving from intellectual activity and means of individualisation. Most Amendments will come into force on 1 October 2014. The Amendments are not only of a technical nature, but also fill in gaps in legislation that had been revealed in recent practice. In this Alert we will focus on key changes for companies and legal/IP practitioners.
