On the expansion of the list of trademark owners in Russia

On June 28, 2022 Federal law No. 193-FZ «On the amendments to Part Four of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation» (in part of the expansion of the list of trademark owners) was published.


«A.Zalesov & Partners» have successfully represented the client before the Chamber for Patent Disputes

Rospatent rendered a decision to grant protection to a trademark under application No. 2020719894 in respect of a part of claimed goods of one class of ICGS since the remaining part was considered confusingly similar to a number of designations of other trademark owners.


The Chamber for Patent Disputes ruled in favor of A.Zalesov’s client in the dispute on the refusal in grant of trademark registration

Rospatent refused to grant protection to the trademark of our client claiming that the figurative element of the designation is similar to the emblem of The International Committee of the Red Cross and referring to the presence of an earlier registration recognized as similar to the claimed designation. Our experts successfully overcame the opposition of an earlier trademark by referring to an earlier conventional priority of the client’s application.
