Intellectual Property Protection

Registration of intellectual property rights in Russian protects owners only on the domestic territory. Therefore, in certain countries, protection of a trademark abroad requires international or national registration of this trademark. When entering a foreign market, it is necessary to register IP rights in the territory of a certain country under the rules of its internal laws. This need arises for export to any certain country. There are so many partner countries, many certificates, patents and other documents to obtain.
