Valentina Orlova participated in debates held by the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, A.R. Belousov


Valentina Orlova, head of the IP and trademarks practice at Pepeliaev Group, participated in debates held by the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, A.R. Belousov. The debates were dedicated to the development of a strategic initiative: “A new intellectual property market”.

Among the participants of the debates, which were held on 13 March, were delegates from Rospatent (the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property), the Russian Government's Department for Economic Development and Finances, the Russian Ministry of Economic Development, the Russian Ministry of Education, as well as leaders of the Russian market from various key industries.

During the meeting, experts discussed the tasks and key measures aimed at establishing a new market of intellectual property, including issues surrounding changes in legal regulation, the improvement of a tax incentive mechanism and the setting up of a patent digital ecosystem. The question was also raised whether shared ownership title to the results of intellectual activity should be recognised in legislation. Valentina Orlova expressed the opinion that such a possibility should be formalised not only with respect to the results of intellectual activity, but to trademarks as well. She stressed that such demand has been expressed by businesses, including in connection with changes in intra-corporate links, changes in the means of identification of goods and services, and the need for a balance to be struck of the interests of all co-owners of a business, for example. The proposal was welcomed by all participants in the debates.
