Russia to Establish New Federal IP Service
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has signed a decree establishing the Federal Service for Intellectual Property, RIA Novosti reported on May 24, 2011.
Medvedev stated that some of the responsibilities of Russia’s Federal Service for Intellectual Property, Patents and Trademarks (Rospatent) and the Federal Agency for the Legal Protection of Military, Special and Dual Purpose Intellectual Property (FAPRID) will be transferred to the new service.
