Russia to Set Up Special IP Court

May 26 2011 - 13:14

Russia is planning to set up a specialized intellectual property court as part of the Skolkovo innovation center, a modern technology complex to be built in the village of Skolkovo, near Moscow, aimed at encouraging scientific research and development.

“Skolkovo’s intellectual products should be protected against copyright and piracy. The project’s major purpose is to create high-value intellectual products. These products will serve as a criterion to assess the center’s performance. For this reason, protection of intellectual property is high on the agenda of both members of the project and its leaders,” explained Igor Drozdov from the Supreme Court of Arbitration of the Russian Federation.

In addition to the IP court, an IP centre is also to be set up in Skolkovo to aid in the protection and commercialization of inventions.
