Representation in the board for patent disputes

While patenting an invention, utility model, industrial design or registering a trademark with ROSPATENT, applicants often face refusal to grant legal protection for intellectual property claimed for registration, or, while monitoring patent information, find reports on ROSPATENT's readiness to grant a patent for an invention, utility model, industrial design or a certificate for a trademark that violates interests of an existing owner of intellectual property.

In order to challenge such decisions, one should refer to the Board for Patent Disputes at ROSPATENT.

The Board for Patent Disputes is a structural unit of the Federal Service for Intellectual Property. Its main function is to protect rights to intellectual property.

Let's see what categories of cases are within the competence of the Board. By analyzing the Rules of submitting oppositions and request and considering them by the Board for Patent Disputes, four categories of cases can be identified:

  • Appealing against ROSPATENT's decisions on refusal to grant legal protection for intellectual property;
  • Challenging ROSPATENT's decisions on grant of legal protection for intellectual property owned by third parties;
  • Termination of patents and trademark certificates; and
  • Establishing well-known nature of trademarks.

Proceedings in the Board for Patent Disputes require corresponding experience and knowledge, therefore, refer to professionals for assistance.
