Russia and Eurasia: A Shared Patent Space

Congress Centre, conference hall B3
Law in International Relations
In Eurasia, aspects related to intellectual property encompass both national and regional elements. In Russia, intellectual property is not only regulated by national legislation, but also by a number of international agreements. The development of regional registration systems has been a major achievement, since protection can now be obtained faster, more cheaply, and more easily across a number of countries simultaneously. However, there is still a wealth of untapped potential when it comes to using intellectual property to foster socioeconomic development in the region. Across Eurasia, work is under way to improve the regulatory framework underpinning the development of intellectual property ecosystems. What are the strategic areas and trends affecting the development of intellectual property in Eurasia? What legal mechanisms are required to support the development of the Eurasian intellectual property market? What new pathways are opening up in the development of intellectual property regulation? What is the role of regional integration bodies, and how will it change in the future? What are the prospects for creating a common space in the region with regards patents and product identifications?
