Implementation of intellectual property rights

The intellectual property in respect of which the owner has the exclusive right may be used by others only upon the consent of the right holder.

The holder of the exclusive right to an IP object may transfer this right to another person in whole or in part, allow another person to use an object of intellectual property and has the right to dispose of it otherwise, if it is not contrary to existing laws.

The holder of the exclusive right to an IP object can implement their property rights as follows:

  • To transfer the rights (part of the rights) to an IP object under a license agreement;
  • To transfer the right to use an IP object under a contract of complex entrepreneurial license (franchise);
  • To use the right for pledge of an IP object;
  • To concede the right to an IP object.

License agreement s, contracts of assignment rights to objects of industrial property rights, pledge contracts on property rights, certified by a certificate for a trademark, a service mark, and a contract of an integrated entrepreneurial license (franchising), which are subject to registration, are considered invalid in cases provided for by legislative acts (p. 2 sub-section 1.3 of paragraph 1 of Resolution No. 346).

In particular, in the absence of registration, will be considered as invalid the following license agreements on transfer of the right on:

  • invention, utility model, industrial design;
  • varieties of plants;
  • circuit layouts;
  • trademarks and service marks.
