Preparation for Applications with 3D Images

Rospatent has stated its intention to introduce amendments into the Civil Code of the Russian Federation as to the registration of applications on the IP objects. In particular, it will be possible to file applications for the registration of inventions, utility models, industrial designs and trademarks with three-dimensional images.

The amendments are connected with rapid development of digital technologies. According to the current Civil Code of the Russian Federation, the applicants looking for IP protection in Russia may file applications with two-dimensional images only (e.g., diagrams or drawings). In view of the above, the Administration of Rospatent has decided to update the legislation.

Rospatent has already started its work on the Civil Code development as to the registration of IP objects. The amendments are supposed to come into force in December, 2018.
