The system of granting patents for industrial designs in Russia has changed



On June 27, 2019, the Law of December 27, 2018 No. 549-FZ came into force, amending Part 4 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation. The amendments introduce temporary legal protection of industrial designs, similar in sense to the temporary legal protection of inventions and implying a possibility of publishing an application for registration of an industrial design at the request of the applicant after completion of the formal examination. Besides, the patent owner will be able to receive money reward after registration of the industrial design if a third party used the industrial design claimed for registration within the period from the date of publication of the application for registration after examination and to the date of publication of information on grant of a patent.
