Eurasian Intellectual Property Regulation: Expanding the Jurisdiction

Congress Centre, conference hall B2
Business and Investment in the Face of Sanctions
Many companies today are expanding their operations into new territory, and Russia’s closest neighbours – the countries of Eurasia – are natural choices as places to do business. In this regard, it has become particularly crucial to have legal protection of intellectual property which covers the region. The process of Eurasian integration is inevitably raising questions regarding expanding the scope of supranational regulation. Eurasian instruments can be employed to reduce costs and harmonize legislation and law enforcement. This in turn can help avoid legal collisions and make decisions more predictable. Why is it worth expanding the competencies of Eurasian structures in relation to intellectual property? How should this be done? What integration mechanisms have already been successful, and how should they be improved? To what extent does the Eurasian contractual framework meet the needs of people and businesses, and what development pathways exist?
