How can counterfeit products be opposed? 

In order to protect their legitimate interests while doing business in Russia, companies use a rather popular and efficient tool – the Customs Register of Intellectual Property. By having his/her trademark entered into the Register a right holder puts an end to imports of counterfeit products and "gray" goods initially meant for sale in other countries to the territory of Russia.

This method works only in respect of companies complying with the customs legislation, i.e., companies declaring imported goods in full and truly.

However, this method is not efficient in respect of persons using "gray" schemes of goods imports, since goods simply either are not indicated in a state customs declaration, or are replaced by another commodity.

Such actions are illegal since they violate both the customs legislation and the criminal legislation.
