Geographical Indications to Be Implemented

The President of the Russian Federation signed the draft of the law on amending the part four of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation and Articles 1 and 231 of the Federal Law on July 26, 2019, which referred to registration of the new type of IP rights such as geographical indication.

According to the daft of the law, geographical indication is a sign identifying a product as originating in the territory of a country or a region or an area, where specific quality, reputation or other characteristics thereof are essentially due to the geographical origin. The registration of geographical indications will be possible in a year, when subsidiary legislations regulating the registration and protection of the new type of the intellectual property rights are implemented along with the law.
