The Intellectual Property Court: the Russian Patent Office is not entitled to compare a trademark and a company name of another person on its own initiative

The Intellectual Property Court (IPC) published a Review of the practice of applying certain grounds for refusal of state registration of a trademark (clauses 2, 4, 5, 8 and 9 of article 1483 of the civil code of the Russian Federation), approved by the IPC Presidium decree No. SP - 21/4 dated February 20, 2020.


Earlier, before the Review, the practice of applying the certain clauses of article 1483 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation consisted of several resolutions of the Plenums of the Supreme Court and the Supreme Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation, as well as a very large array of disparate judicial acts adopted even before the appearance of the IPC. Now there is a single generalized document that addresses ambiguous and controversial issues of the application of this article.
