Trademark invalidation

A registered Russian trademark may be challenged by any interested person:

  • on the basis of “absolute” grounds for refusal - during the whole trademark’s lifetime; and
  • on the basis of “relative” grounds - within five years from the publication date.

According to Russian law, a cancellation action based on absolute or relative grounds is to be filed with the Russian Patent and Trademark Office (Rospatent). The Rospatent decision is appealable to the Intellectual Property Court.

Sojuzpatent has decades of experience in all kinds of trademark disputes, representing either a trademark owner or an opposing party. In many cases, we help our clients to reach a favourable settlement.
