Patent Dispute and Cancellation

In accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation within the validity period a patent for invention, utility model or industrial design can be cancelled entirely or partially.

Filing an intervention to the Federal Service for intellectual property (Rospatent)

The grant of a patent can be disputed by filing an intervention to the Chamber for Patent Disputes in Rospatent.

Intervention can be submitted by any person who knows about the infringements envisaged by the Civil code of the Russian Federation namely:

  • Inconsistency with the terms of patentability.
  • Existence in patent formula or in the list of essential characteristics of such characteristics that have not been mentioned in the formula, in the list of characteristics or in the image at the time when the application was filed.
  • Grant of patent if there are several applications for identical inventions, utility models or industrial design that have one and the same priority date.

Court Action

In case if Rospatent’s decision does not suit the applicant for a patent or patent-holder then such decision can be appealed to a court.

Grant of patent can be immediately contested judicially on the grounds defined by the legislation of the Russian Federation. For example: in case when patent is granted and the person who is not the author or patent-holder is mentioned in patent as the author or patent-holder; in case when the author or patent –holder is not mentioned in the patent.

Patent Cancellation

If patent is cancelled it means that Rospatent’s decision is cancelled and State registration entry is annulled.

Patent is cancelled from the date of filing of patent application. In case when patent is cancelled a new patent can be partially granted.

License agreements signed on the basis of a patent which is cancelled later, will be valid to the extent they are fulfilled up to the date when court decision on patent cancellation is made.

Patent can be terminated early.
